Summary

You now have the information needed to translate most XAML examples into a language such as C# and vice versa. However, because type converters and markup extensions are “black boxes,” a straightforward translation is not always going to be obvious.

I love the fact that simple concepts that could have been treated specially by XAML (such as null or a named reference) are expressed using the same markup extension mechanism used by third parties in WPF. This keeps the XAML language as simple as possible, and it ensures that the extensibility mechanism works really well.
