ASP.NET 2.0 - Login.aspx loses Master Page settings during runtime

I have a Login.aspx page that I created based upon a "Template.master" page.  It looks fine in the designer but when I go to run it the login control shows up but there is no formatting almost as if the Template.master or CSS are disconnected.  I then login and everything is fine.  Weird.

The startup page is "Default.aspx" but the user is taken to the "Login.aspx" page because these "web.config" settings:

    <authorization>
        <deny users="?" />
    </authorization>
   
    <authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms loginUrl="Login.aspx" path="/" />
    </authentication>

Any ideas or thoughts are GREATLY appreciated,

Hammer

Where is the CSS coming from--the template folder?

The Template.master is in the root directory and so is the CSS ("layout.css").  The CSS is linked like this:

<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="layout.css" />
<title>Testing</title>
<script type="text/javascript" >
    function PopTheWindow(pageName, pageFeatures)
    {
        window.open(pageName, null, pageFeatures);
    }
</script>
</head>
<body>

The Login is an Aspx page (Login.aspx) based upon Template.master.  It is in the same directory as Template.master, the root directory.

It's HTML is:

<%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Template.master" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Login.aspx.cs" Inherits="Login" Title="Login" %>

<asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="mainContent" Runat="Server" Visible="true">
    <asp:Login ID="Login1" runat="server">
    </asp:Login>
</asp:Content>

Weird stuff because it looks fine in the designer.

No one gave a solution to this problem...so here is the solution...

You need to set the authentication on the images/css folder to allow everyone.  It would look something like this in the web.config:

<location path="Images">    
    <system.web>        
        <authorization>            
             <allow users="*"/>        
        </authorization>    
    </system.web>
</location>
