Maybe I misunderstood something, but I have a feeling that you may be making some slightly wrong assumptions about asp. Asp is not so much a language - I consider it rather a platform. It is the .NET way to make interactive webpages. Asp will interact with c# code, and it is AFAIK the closest you can get to "making webpages with c#" (Unless you want to write your own webserver in c#, which is probably gonna be a lot more work than learning asp).
After all, learning asp may prove useful for you and being fluent in c# makes it even easier for you to learn it.

I'm moving this to the Web Development forum.

The simple answer to your question is yes, it is possible to code web pages in C# - provided you have the .NET framework installed on your server you're good to go. The benefits of .NET for web development are groovy. Aside from having access to the .NET framework plus WebForms, Web Services and an object-based page model, you get CodeBehind which allows you to separate your content from your code. ASP.NET can be coded in any .NET language - you can even mix them across pages (but not inter-page, that's for ASP.NET 2, I believe). This means you could code one section of your site in VB.NET, another in C# and another in JScript.

Have a look at a couple of sites - ASP.net, OnDotNet and GotDotNet for beginners Web tutorials in .NET. They have examples in C# AND VB, allowing you to compare the differences. Also check out the Forum FAQ for some more .NET links.
