The SML.NET user manual says (p. 4).

"No interactive evaluation. The interactive environment is for compilation
of stand-alone applications or libraries only. SML expressions can not be
evaluated interactively and the use command is not available."

Isabelle sources contains many "use commands", so it will not
run on SML.NET.

Yes, I want to know about it too.
There was an attempt to document some internals: see Isabelle Documentation Project
But I do not know about any results.
