Thank you Mike!
I realize this is a loose association from this threads orientation.
Interesting MVC (Model - View - Controller) is built on top of the Web Pages framework. I noticed the two options for view engine. The book I'm reading prefers the Razor option, which was a pleasant surprise.
Just want to say you and Imar's book got me up and running with WebMatrix (converting apps from ColdFusion) and it seems it will help me with MVC 3, because it uses Razor!
