From the limited perspective of working with VisualStudio.Net 2003,
I hazard it extends the concepts used for building custom controls
to the whole GUI.
Demsak's explanation seems right. Declare objects in C# or in XAML.
The engine does the rest... if the markup
editor holds together, that is. VS.Net's integration of HTML,
asp:whatsis and C# (etc.) is productive but occasionally flakey.
A misstep when editing the codebehind file or in the HTML can
blow away a lot of controls on a page without warning.
Overall though, particularly with respect to building and
applying web services, this is one of the most productive
IDE's I've used. Easy to learn, and once learned, a fast
way to build apps without too much hassle. Very nice.

XAML is a declarative markup language that defines
an object model
