xaml references
Let me refer you to the XAML master, Don Box and his blog entry from
just after the 2003 PDC,
http://www.gotdotnet.com/team/dbox/default.aspx?month=2003-11 .  There
isn't a direct link , but the 3rd post down, entitled "The Role of
XAML" says it all:

XAML is just an XML-based way to wire up CLR types - no more no less.
Given the appropriate namespace decls, the following is legal (albeit
useless) XAML:
<Object def:Class="MyClass" /> 
which is equivalent to the following C# fragment:
public partial class MyClass : System.Object {} 
XAML is domain-neutral, so while it may be used to create desktop
apps, web pages, and printable documents, it could also be used to
create CRM apps, blogging backends, or highly concurrent web services
provided you had a supporting CLR-based library to do the heavy


If you scroll down a bit further to the blog titled "Hello, World in
XAML (for real)" you see a very simple example of what XAML is all
