Object-specific Layout Update Handles

Every HTTP request in Magento results with a few layout handles which can be used to customize layout of desired pages. If you ever tried to dump layout handles in Magento, you would see many of them. These handles are calculated differently, based on different variables. Depending on whether the user is logged in or not, Magento uses customer_logged_in and customer_logged_out handles.

Themes have their own layout handles, e.g. THEME_frontend_default_default, THEME_frontend_enterprise_default.
