Ok to recap - if you are interested in Response times for a Page then you
need to consider
a. The time it takes to get the page
b. The time it takes to get the resources for the page(E.g. images, js,
css)  - The side topics we were discussing was whether JMeter should be used
/ is a good choice to perform this calculation. However whether you do this
in JMeter or somewhere else , if you want to know Response time you must
consider this component.
c. The time it takes to actually render the page by the browser (usually
only DHTML heavy - Ajax widgets pages need bother about this )

So in your case you have response time for the main page say 10 seconds(this
is pt A). You also requested ScriptResource.axd this is supposed to be 7
seconds. Lets say you also have some other static file Y which responded
with average of 2 seconds.
Now if you had checked retrieve embedded resources JMeter would have given
you average time for the Page + request as approx 10+7+2=19. If however you
observed in Firebug that Script Resource.axd and static File Y are fetched
in parallel then your response time actually is 10+7 = 17 (because the two
seconds will be covered)

Ill add some stuff later
