No.  See here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ASP.NET#Characteristics   They are not XML at all, they are combined code and HTML files used to generate web pages.

No.

XML uses tags to define the data and cannot execute code. They are based on a public standard.

.aspx files use tags to format the document and can execute code. They use a Microsoft standard.

They are very different things
