isWindowless

I started on this yestarday, Great Project! Thank you. My one question:
Working with an html overlay over the images (silverlight: "isWindoless='true').

I tried:

<configuration>
<module type="SlideViewer">
<option name"Windoless" value"true">

and it's not responding as i thought it would: did i mess up in configuration or am i messing up in html?

@LSoares, there is a Transparent sample included with the source code that uses the "windowless" option. If you run the sample, it shows a semi-transparent slideshow over some HTML controls.

Please note that the Transparent sample uses JSON configuration instead of XML configuration, but you can easily go from one to the other.

for anyone that might be following this, my test site is in asp.net with master pages:
This doesn't seem to like asp controls so far, so pure html & styles are working at this point.

To the configuration.xml I added:

background = transparent
windoless = true

To my master page (where this is running at the top of the page):

used inline css to contrain:
location of both site map and overlay image (a logo.png)
also set the overlay image z-index to 2
