Notes to Inheritors

For use as a type converter for custom-type attribute handling in Silverlight XAML, you do not need to implement this method (it is not called by the Silverlight XAML parser for type conversion purposes). However , you might still want to implement a practical behavior for ConvertTo as a best practice.
