Is there a way to have the version that is in the AssemblyInfo.css file reflect that of the Version that is given to a project in Visual Source Safe?

not quite that will return $Revision: 2$ so you would need to do some magic with it to get the version out

There is a note in that link that Greg gave:

Note   Keyword expansion is by default disabled for all files. See your VSS Administrator to enable keyword expansion.

ok.. so does the replacement come before or after compilation? cause if it's after then this won't do what I want it to.
