On my Silverlight project I need to show an excel document, received from the server, in a new browser tab.

With ASP works like this:
 private void OpenReport(string name)
        FileStream fs = File.OpenRead(name);

        Response.AppendHeader("Content-disposition", "inline; filename=" + name);
        Response.AppendHeader("Pragma", "no-cache");
        Response.Expires = -1;
        Response.ContentType = "application/";
        Response.BinaryWrite(GetWholeFileContent(fs, (int)fs.Length));

    private byte[] GetWholeFileContent(FileStream f, int lenght)
        byte[] stream = new byte[lenght+1];
        f.Read(stream, 0, lenght);
        return stream;

How to implement it on a Silverlight project?
