Crop the webbrowser control in a Windows Phone 7 app

When building my Windows Phone 7 app – I needed to login into LinkedIn – unfortunately the login page of LinkedIn does not seem to scale as well as the Twitter login page so I decided to only show a specific part of the page within the WebBrowser control for Windows Phone. I kind of got it working by using the Clip property (for reference see How to: Crop an object (Silverlight))

<phone:WebBrowser HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" 
Name="webBrowser1" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Height="466" Width="480"
IsScriptEnabled="True" Visibility="Collapsed">
<RectangleGeometry Rect="0,0,400,300" />

Windows Phone 7–Solving the missing dll issue in Training Kit Lab–Using Pivot and Panorama controls

The lab Using Pivot And Panorama Controls seems to be missing file that supports the reference to the Syndication namespace - System.ServiceModel.Syndication.dll . You can copy that one over from the install directory of the Silverlight 3.0 SDK (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Silverlight\v3.0\Libraries\Client).  You can ignore the warning message when adding the dll – everything will work correctly.
