I am trying to controll the include order of my CSS files, on my DNN 07.03.04 (45) site.

The main objective is to load my style.css last, to be able to overide css from bootstrap etc. I changed the name of skin.css to style.css to get it to load after my other css includes. But I can't controll the output order of my included CSS files. The orderd seemed to act differently on diffrent pages, though the includes where the same.

This article mentions priority, but does not explain how I apply priority to my stylesheets.

This is some of my includes:
<dnn:DnnCssInclude ID="fontello1CSS" runat="server" FilePath="fontello/css/animation.css" PathNameAlias="SkinPath" />
<dnn:DnnCssInclude ID="fontello2CSS" runat="server" FilePath="fontello/css/fontello.css" PathNameAlias="SkinPath" /> <dnn:DnnCssInclude ID="fontello3CSS" runat="server" FilePath="fontello/css/fontello-codes.css" PathNameAlias="SkinPath" />
<dnn:DnnCssInclude ID="fontello4CSS" runat="server" FilePath="fontello/css/fontello-embedded.css" PathNameAlias="SkinPath" />
<dnn:DnnCssInclude ID="fontello5CSS" runat="server" FilePath="fontello/css/fontello-ie7.css" PathNameAlias="SkinPath" />
<dnn:DnnCssInclude ID="fontello6CSS" runat="server" FilePath="fontello/css/fontello-ie7-codes.css" PathNameAlias="SkinPath" />
<dnn:DnnCssInclude ID="normalizeCSS" runat="server" FilePath="normalize/normalize.css" PathNameAlias="SkinPath" />
<dnn:DnnCssInclude ID="styleCSS" runat="server" FilePath="style.css" PathNameAlias="SkinPath" />

And this is the output order:
<link href="/Portals/3/Skins/trewportal-2015/normalize/normalize.css?cdv=23" media="all" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
<link href="/Portals/3/Skins/trewportal-2015/style.css?cdv=23" media="all" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
<link href="/Portals/3/Skins/trewportal-2015/fontello/css/animation.css?cdv=23" media="all" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
<link href="/Portals/3/Skins/trewportal-2015/fontello/css/fontello-ie7-codes.css?cdv=23" media="all" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
<link href="/Portals/3/Skins/trewportal-2015/fontello/css/fontello-codes.css?cdv=23" media="all" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
<link href="/Portals/3/Skins/trewportal-2015/fontello/css/fontello.css?cdv=23" media="all" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
<link href="/Portals/3/Skins/trewportal-2015/fontello/css/fontello-ie7.css?cdv=23" media="all" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
<link href="/Portals/3/Skins/trewportal-2015/fontello/css/fontello-embedded.css?cdv=23" media="all" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
