Notes to Inheritors

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