1.3. Managing Layout

A fundamental task for a web developer is arranging the user interface in the most efficient, attractive, and intuitive way possible. After your application is defined and its architecture is constructed at the data and services levels, the presentation, or user interface, is the only visible aspect of your application; because of this, it becomes the most important factor in "selling" your application to others, whether it's users in your company or the whole world. Silverlight 2's presentation capabilities are its most impressive asset, and you'll want to use them to their full potential. In this section, you'll learn what you need to achieve content layouts similar to the ones you're building today in ASP.NET.

ASP.NET layout, at its root, is accomplished through existing web standards, specifically CSS-based layouts applied with tags from directly referenced resources or bundled within ASP.NET Themes, and HTML table-based layouts.
