I used Visual Studio 2012 and the built-in template (under Add -> New Project) to create a brand new ASP.NET Web Forms web application project targeting .NET Framework 4.5. Inside the Site.Master page provided by default I see some markup that includes CSS on the page, which looks like this:
<webopt:BundleReference runat="server" Path="~/Content/css" />
However, I noticed that I can potentially use this other code instead....
<%: Styles.Render("~/Content/css") %>
When I look at the rendered page, the result appears to be the same thing. What is the difference between using webopt:BundleReference and using Styles.Render?
Is one of these a better approach than the other?
