Yes, but the code generated by asp.net does not know about that
namespace. That's why you have to use @Import, so that the generated
code contains a 'using yournamespace;'.

The 'CodeBehind' attribute is a VS.NET only thing. VS.NET uses it when
building the project. So in this case, you have to copy the dlls
generated by VS.NET into the 'bin' directory.

If you use the attribute Src (<%@Page src="somepage.aspx.cs" %>) your
source C# file will be compiled the first time that page is hit. In this
case you don't need to have the dlls around, but everytime you restart
the server the source needs to be compiled.
