After updating the XAML to make this project compatible with Silverlight2 RTW, it doesn't seem as though this technique works for IE7 and earlier browsers. This is disappointing considering that IE7 and earlier represent nearly all of our targeted platforms. Would it be possible to use a hidden iframe to accomplish the same task?
