Using DeepZoom with a WPF Application

Is it possible to use deepzoom with a wpf/xbap application instead of silverlight, and if not, is there an alternative that will give me the same fluid controls and navigation as DeepZoom?

You can call methods back and forth between your WPF app and JS in the WebBrowser control (see near the bottom of this page: http://www.dotnetfunda.com/articles/article840-working-with-webbrowser-in-wpf-.aspx). At the very least, you could call a method and pass basic types (string, int, etc.) back and forth.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like WPF supports DeepZoom, but you could create a normal SL DeepZoom and host it inside a WebBroswer control in your WPF app.

If I go this route and use a WebBrowser control can my application still communicate with silverlight so that I can do certain things in my wpf application when the deep zoom is at a specific location.  Or are there any alternatives that can simulate deepzooms functionality that you know of?

Actually here is an example of someone doing exactly this--using JS as a bridge between Silverlight and the WebBrowser control.
