Assuming that you meant ASP.NET's StaticPageHandler: it does
not handle if-modified-since. Last time I checked MS.NET
did not support it either.

For best performance, static files must be delivered by a real
web server. This is the *default* configuration with both
ISS+ASP.NET and apache+mod_mono.

Add this to the already mentioned pros of a real-world
ASP.NET setup :)
