I saw I can download ASP.NET from http://www.asp.net. How is it
different from .NET SDK? As I understand both allow you to develop .NET
application using only Notepad (no IDE included). What can I do in .NET SDK
that I can't do in ASP.NET (and vise versa)?
That site DOES NOT appear to be the .NET SDK, but rather a set of additional
tools, to be used together with the .NET SDK. In order to actually turn
the file (created in Notepad) into something that will actually execute,
you will still need to that the CLR and all of the associated infra-structure.

It's not .NET SDK but it looks like that download is all you neet to create
"...ASP.NET follows the same "just hit save" design principle of ASP: Any
text-based editing application may be used to create ASP.NET
When you click the download link it redirects you to an MSDN page which
"Beta 2 of the Microsoft ASP.NET Premium Edition has everything you need to
build, deploy and run ASP.NET Web applications. It includes the .NET
Framework Redist -- containing the Common Language Runtime, .NET Framework
Libraries, ADO.NET, command line VB.NET, C# and JScript.NET compilers, and
core ASP.NET support -- and adds additional support for ASP.NET Web farm
session state, output caching and secure hosting features"
Looks like one doesnt have to download full SDK. That's why my question was
about the differnece between .NET SDK and this ASP.NET download
