How important are ASP.NET web pages today in the job market?

I have a contract writing an MVC2 application, and love the technology. I never worked much with ASP.NET controls and code behind, so I am glad to be working on a website. But I wonder if ASP.NET 4.0 added new capabilities to asp controls? This technology is still the fastest way to make a web site, right?

I am wondering of all the possibilities to make a website using ASP.NET, where an ASP.NET website fits in.

There's:
MVC2
ASP.NET
Silverlight
SharePoint (WSS or MOSS)

Pllease give me hour opinions. I think I'll be back in the market by Spring/Summer and need to expand my skills on the GUI end, and am considering digging into ASP.NET controls.

Thanks,
newbieweb
