How to Upload Simple Silverlight Hello, World to Azure

I am having trouble determining what is needed to upload a simple Silverlight application to Azure.  The book Microsoft Silverlight 4 by Laurence Moroney ("step by step") is good, and the hello world program suggested is very easy to create.  However, what is needed to port or upload this to Azure?

Thank you, Sudhakar.  This is an excellent reference for deploying an Azure cloud service with an project (which I have done, but your link would have made this a much easier process!).  Rob Bagby's material is really helpful (now at   However, the missing link for me is what to do with Silverlight.  In VS the Silverlight app is generated in a separate project, and I am not yet clear how you add the resulting Silverlight package to the Cloud service.

Sudhakar: The link you provided gave sufficient information to find a solution, so I am accepting that information as the solution.  
Here is my understanding: In Visual Web Developer (or VS), in your Azure Cloud project, simply add the Silverlight application as a New Item.  I tried this by creating a new Silverlight Application item and ; it is hopefully just as easy to add a Silverlight App developed as a separate project.
