Telerik controls css formatting not working

I want to use the Telerik MVC controls in Orchard.  The functionality works fine, but I can't get it to format properly using the Telerik css files.  It works fine in a regular MVC 3 app.  Anybody solve this problem, and can you post the solution?

Could it be that the current theme you are using is messing up teleriks css?

Try to create a theme based on the default css you had in your MVC3 app, and see how that goes.

Didn't help.  I think the problem is down in the plumbing.  I also experimented with the obout and knockout librarys, and they all have problems working in the Orchard context.  For now I've just decided to use what Orchard gives you.  Keeps compatibility issues to a minimum.  From my perspective, the only control they need to add is a full featured data grid part. 

If somebody solves this problem (Telerik, are you listening), I'll revist it.  They have a really nice grid.

As a follow up, I looked around a bit and found this MVC grid.

I will report back with how well it works with Orchard (or not at all) within a reasonable time frame.
