That is a rather broad question, what specifically are you looking to do?

I can tell you that I am putting together an Orchard site that includes Silverlight content. Since Orchard renders HTML, you simply need to include the Silverlight plug-in.

See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc189089%28v=vs.95%29.aspx for details.

Thanks I appreciate it.

 

Now, do you know if I can use Expression Blend to create my view pages for Orchard?

U can use Expression Blend to create "Display templates" or complete pages.

PS: For Silverlight you could use a silverlight html helper, some guy named "Bart Czernicki" created one.

Or u might even create a custom orchard field for this
