    Any web mashups, by definition, require cross-domain calls. Those cross-domain calls may happen on the client (in the browser) or on the server. Regardless of the client technology (AJAX, Flash, Silverlight, etc.), cross domain calls on the client are always more complex that server-side cross-domain calls, and for good reason. It's tricky in AJAX, and it's downright difficult in Silverlight. You'll know that Silverlight development has become more widespread when you hear a lot more complaints about this problem.

    The following is part of a continuing "fantasy learning experience" of a .NET programmer learning Silverlight using the resources on this site. The premise is that this experience is "asynchronous" in that you may choose to join our novice at any time, reading the various day's entries as you like, adding to the experience with your own comments, exercises, etc.  

    Bold print entries are from the part of my brain which is the Silverlight Geek.  Light print entries are from the fantasy novice. 


    I finally made it through all the set up, decided based on Silverlight Geek's entries, that I'll use Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 as my development environment (see BUILD SILVERLIGHT 1.0 RC APPLICATIONS USING VISUAL STUDIO 2008 ) and, having followed the discussion on this blog, I'm going to install Justin's library to allow me to have Intellisense in Javascript.
