A loose XAML file is a file containing XAML that has no associated code-behind and is not compiled into an application. A loose XAML file can be loaded into Internet Explorer, where the user interface will be rendered.
Some rules about loose XAML files:
- The top-level element cannot be a Window, but could be a Page or other GUI element (e.g. StackPanel).
- The top-level element must have any required namespaces defined
- The top-level element cannot have a x:Class attribute
- No elements in the file can have event handlers
- The only browser supported is Internet Explorer (Firefox can render loose XAML with WPF plug-in)
