Yesterday I downloaded Visual Studio .NET 2005 TP on my Windows 2003 Server. I was completely excited to develop an Indigo application without waiting for Longhorn alpha slowness. After a long setup, I discovered that Indigo isn't present in this version :-(
I'm so sorry to read that the Indigo developer team is developping on Windows XP and I (we) have to wait for so long time ....
Probably I'm making something wrong, but I don't undesrtand why the XSD type gYearMonth (it's not the only one) is mapper on System.String CLR type. If I have a simple web method as following:

private string ToHtmlAlpha(System.Drawing.Color c)
