A contestant in the BALL Watch Silverlight Contest sent a request to Michael Scherotter and asked him how to data bind to the day of the week. The solution according to Michael is to create a value converter and use that in the binding. 

I create value converters so often in my Silverlight and WPF development, that I created a C# item template that I use over and over in Visual Studio.  I’ve posted the item template to the Visual Studio Gallery so you can use it too.  The Visual Studio Gallery is integrated with Visual Studio 2010, so you can install and start using the template right from Visual Studio.
