British Library's Turning The Pages project now in Silverlight

The British Library's Turning The Pages project is currently featuring 5 treasures from across the United Kingdom. In addition to the Windows Vista version (specifically a WPF browser app a.k.a. XBAP) of the app, there's now a new Silverlight version for broader browser and platform reach.

I love this app and often use it as an example to explain what I do in Microsoft to lay persons. A tip for the authors of the Silverlight 1.0 flavor of the app: it'd be cool to see mousewheel support for the Zoom function. Here's a post from Pete that explains the approach.
