Avoiding JavaScript and CSS Stylesheet Caching Problems in ASP.NET

We frequently run into problems related to caching when building ASP.NET websites. In particular, changes to CSS Stylesheets and JavaScript files on which the sites rely. After a new release our clients often have problems until they manually clear their browser cache. Some of our clients sit behind a proxy server which has its own cache, making the situation even worse.

The problem also extends to our development environment. As more of our UI work is moved into the browser through JavaScript and AJAX, we more frequently run into caching problems ourselves.
