    I'm starting to do some research on the Book silverlight tool, and to begin with, I'd like to know if it is possible to populate it with data coming from existing doc/xls/pdf/html files.
    Does it understand html tags and how to show the content already formated (interpreting the tags like a regular browser would do)?

    I'd appreciate any help, than you guys!

    Hi Wagner Sena,

    RadBook is an ItemsControl and is not doing any transformations over the XLS, DOCS or PDF formats. In order to use such formats you need to build a converted from the specific format to Silverlight content and then to display it in the Book.
