Silverlight ICO/ICON Decoder (Parser)

It turns out the Windows BMP file format is similar to the Windows ICO file format.  Given that, it wasn't too hard for me to produce a Windows ICO/ICON decoder (parser) based on the work I did around a Silverlight BMP decoder.  I didn't spend a lot of time making the source efficient, so if you make improvements, let me know and I'll incorporate them into my version.  Click on the image below to run a live version of the Silverlight 3 based sample.

    So I was using your BMPDecoder with SL4 to aquire and decode an image from my WIA scanner.  For some strange reason the image is mirrored both up/down and left/right.  It was also thowing errors on the function Read24BitBmp() until I added (header.Height = -header.Height)  Thoughts on how to correct this???
