Does anybody have an application under test (AUT) that uses a mixture of HTML and Silverlight controls, which they have successfully automated?

My AUT web app has screens with a mixture of HTML and Silverlight, and this requires silverlight to run in Windowless mode.

But, this apparently makes the Silverlight elements opaque to automation (according to Ranorex). I've tried a few different automation tools now, without success (they are unable to distinguish elements within the Silverlight area). Before I waste my time trying and failing with every tool there is, does anybody have any experience of this at all?
