Windows Presentation Foundation (formerly code named "Avalon") is Microsoft's new graphical presentation technology, with support for advanced typography and layout, rich media integration, and vector and 3D graphics.

This developer-oriented overview shows you how to leverage existing Web content to create richer, more productive users experiences anywhere from existing Web sites to users' desktops.
