Editing Web Forms pages with WebMatrix

Is it possible to edit asp.net web forms pages (especially SharePoint pages) with WebMatrix? Of course I can edit them, but intellisense support is lacking. If I create a new masterpage through webmatrix (Beta 2), i get a page with the web forms code below.

But when I type <asp: I don’t get any intellisense. I tried to include System.Web.dll in the bin folder, but that did not help.

Any ideas?

Master page code:

<%@ Master Language="C#" %>

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head runat="server">
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <title></title>
    <asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="head" runat="server">
    </asp:ContentPlaceHolder>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="ContentPlaceHolder1" runat="server">
        </asp:ContentPlaceHolder>
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>
 

Intellisense is being introduced in WebMatrix 2, which is in Beta at the moment.
