It's very easy to style the caret in Silverlight 3. Look at that huge TextBox with a caret in the rainbow colors:

You just need to set the CaretBrush property:

<TextBox FontSize="50" Width="100" Height="80">  
        <ScaleTransform ScaleX="6" ScaleY="1"/>  
        <LinearGradientBrush x:Name="backgroundLinearGradientBrush"
                StartPoint="0,0" EndPoint="0,1">
                <GradientStop Color="Red" Offset="0" />
                <GradientStop Color="Orange" Offset="0.167" />
                <GradientStop Color="Yellow" Offset="0.333" />
                <GradientStop Color="Green" Offset="0.5"/>
                <GradientStop Color="Blue" Offset="0.667" />
                <GradientStop Color="Indigo" Offset="0.833" />
                <GradientStop Color="Violet" Offset="1" />

You can use any Silverlight supported Brush.
