Note about Silverlight:
IronySilverlight project in the solution is a version of Irony for use in Silverlight environment. 
This project shares almost all sources files with core Irony project. It has a conditonal symbol SILVERLIGHT defined
and uses it in a few places to select different code pieces for different environments. 
The output assembly name is IronySL.dll. By default this project is not compiled when you build the solution -
so it does not break your build if you don't have SL files on your computer. 
To compile this project you must have Silverlight 4 Tools installed:
