    Dim newStyleSheet As New HtmlLink()
    newStyleSheet.Href = "include/StyleSheet.css"

I want to add a stylesheet in the codebehind using this simple code snippet, my page doesn't have anything else.
I got Declaration expected error when do a 'build page' as well as when 'view in Browser' in localhost.

When I typed in a dot after an object, a contex menu appears with a bunch of object' members, what namespace I should import in this case for newStyleSheet? cause I don't see anything....

what's wrong with my page? Thx

Your statements need to be either in a constructor or a method or an event, just can be dangling like there in a class.
