I recommend to use codebehind files (no code in .aspx files) and compile
them to a DLL assembly using MS Visual Studio or MS vbc.exe. The resulting
DLL will be compatible with Mono as it's VB runtime is highly MS compatible.
In addition you should set default compiler language to C# either in
Web.config or in .aspx files to avoid CodeDom with VB as well.
