What is the relationship between WPF and ASP.NET ?

Is that WPF going to replace WinForm based desktop applications? But for web
application, it is a different story?
I am going to develop a web project, ocz I'd like it to be supported by most
web brewers. I know asp.net render basic html of client side, so it is not a
problem. But will WPF .xbap file be as popular? And is it just a client
technology? If so, how can it interactive with ASP.NET?
And are there WPF newsgroup?

"xbap" is WPF, so is windows. If you want compatibility, you should be
looking at Silverlight 2.0, or "xap" (i.e. it creates a .xap file);
Silverlight can interact with a hosting html page (for interaction
with ASP.NET), and works on a range of browsers and platforms *if*
they have the plugin.

I don't believe winform is under any immediate threat of disappearing
due to WPF; WPF is simply another available tool for jobs where Win32
controls aren't going to be enough.
