nde, i don't know if silverlight can be converted manually..i can't insall it because i don't really trust it..
i don't think silverlight is worth the effort..i did some research and it seems the biggest(and only) advocates of silverlight are its developers and .net programmers who lack flash knowledge.
i don't want to rush into a predication that this thing is almost dead..but it appears than with the early versions of silverlight, some websites; particulary sports with streaming video were quick to endorse and implement(as mentioned on silverlight blogs to test out certain apps) and nbc ofcourse.. i checked a few of those websites expecting to see 'install silverlight' etc but it seems those sites were just as quick to drop it and everything is built with flash now.

i extracted the files using an msp expander from this link: http://blogs.msdn.com/heaths/archive/2006/04/07/571138.aspx
nothing registers with regsrv32 or runs directly with rundll32 so i have no idea how ms installs the plugin but obviously all files must go in the systems' folder and not the browser's plugin folder.. there seems to be some locale files that can be done without..

silverlight seems to be mainly for windows+ie.. they say it supports mac osx but i've yet to find someone of a mac(online) using/developing for it. maybe ms is still living in the delusion that aps/plugins for its oses only will sell like hot cakes, that doesn't happen anymore and there's no place for your cloud9 thingy if you keep ignoring browsers and os offering from others. i really hope this thing never catches on, i'm no programmer but from what i read about how silverlight blends in ajax with xml with .net; it's seems like a hacker's dream come true
edit: sorry.. i misunderstood, thought you were asking about silverlight..what's bing? this bing: http://www.bing.im/en/
grr..can't believe i went into all this silverlight research for nothing
