Ext.Net - Controlling core css and javascript files rendered on the page

Web 2.0: 

Our designer had created a comprehensive custom theme for ExtJs, and we wanted to use it in our ASP.NET app that leverages Ext.Net and ExtJs extensively.

If you have used Ext.Net, you would know that all ExtJs resources are embedded in Ext.Net.dll assembly that are automatically put on the page whenever you add an <ext:ResourceManager /> to the page. This includes the core ExtJs css and javascript resources (including current ExtJs theme's resources), plus Ext.Net's own resources (providing extensions/enhancements to Ext classes).

CKEditor - [CKEDITOR.dialog.openDialog] Dialog "link" failed when loading definition

I think this happened to me some weeks ago but I am blogging about it only now (the last month or so has been overly hectic, so no time for "exotic" activities like blogging).

In an ASP.NET website installation that has been running perfectly for months and using CKEditor for wysiwyg content entry, suddenly the users started reporting they can no longer click the "Link" button in the editor toolbar to bring up the Link dialog for turning the selected text to a hyperlink.
