ASP.NET apps referencing GAC assemblies

This is just an FYI.

Regarding ASP.NET applications referencing GAC assemblies, Visual Studio doesn't (easily) let us reference assemblies from the GAC. We need to point to a copy of the assembly in the filesystem. However at runtime application will look for the assembly in the GAC first, providing it can find a match with the right version/culture/public key token.
