Out of Microsoft comes this latest offering, for managing web pages. One of its strengths is to be able to make cross-browser compatible pages. Seems to me that 10 years ago, the browser wars were in full rage, and this was a big issue. But while those browsers have been supplanted by the current IE and sundry open source competitors, there are still incompatibilities. So Silverlight helps here. Another strength of Silverlight is its emphasis on using XAML. The use of XML-style files as the 'database' (so to speak), also opens Silverlight for functioning in a fairly open environment. Where other of your apps can read/write to those XAML files. Good to see that Microsoft hasn't gone the earlier route of its proprietary binary data format for its Office suite. From the get go, Silverlight uses XML. Yet another merit is how the Silverlight developers made the pragmatic decision to support JavaScript. No mention in this book of the (unlamented?) JScript. Which, if you recall, is Microsoft's proprietary take on JavaScript. But the web marketplace strongly favours JavaScript. (I would have fully expected Silverlight to go with JScript.)
