Help us Improve the Telerik UI for Silverlight Documentation

If you find an issue with our docs that need to be addressed, the best way to let us know is by creating an issue in our Github repository. When creating an issue, please provide a descriptive title, be as specific as possible and link to the documentation in question.

That way you may contribute to exactly where you found the error. After that, our technical writing team just needs to approve your change request. Please use only standard markdown.
