I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

it has no special meaning. where do you get it from?

At the start of a name eg. __foo I think it was from Microsoft to indicate this was part of their code.  Otherwise just something that meant something to the person that did it.  (Nothing special for everyone else).

Discovered that it's the Telerik converter that's doing it !

I realise that it's nothing special.. just wondered if there was some strange new naming convention to learn :)

Aha, probably to let you know what variables  (files...) have been converted/renamed.
