What is the best way to force a reload of a style sheet

WestCoast_BC asked

If I change my style sheet (.css file) I want to force a reload of the file. What is the best way to do this? Is it by adding a query string? Ie:
<link href="style.css?ver=2" rel="stylesheet">

and then changing ver= each time my style sheet changes?

Should I do the same thing for js files?
