Silverlight XAML parsing error
Are you facing the following error while compiling Silverlight code?

"Unexpected NONE in parse rule ElementBody ::= ATTRIBUTE* ( PropertyElement | Content )* . ENDTAG.."

Please check your XAML, it must be containing syntax like:
<UserControl.Resources />

<Grid.ColumnDefinitions />


For unknown reasons, Silverlight compiler fails if you have declared something similar to these. Reason I could guess is Silverlight compiler fails to compile empty collection syntax declared in the aforementioned way.

It though supports empty collections if declared as below:
<UserControl.Resources > </UserControl.Resources >

<Grid.ColumnDefinitions > </Grid.ColumnDefinitions >
