Updating CSS file

OK, so I thought I was figuring things out. I guess I was wrong.
I am updating a second css file located in
I also have Rt in Devel mode.
However each time I make a change to file.css I need to delete
[rthome]/var/mason_data/obj/local/NoAuth/file.css before the new changes in
the /local/html/NoAuthfile.css will take effect. And sometimes I need to
restart the apache server for the local file to be converted to the
mason_data file (but not always).
Is there no way around this? (other than editting the file in the mason_data
directory path)
Ideas? Help?
