xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
Title="FlowContent" Height="381" Width="525" >
            <FlowDocumentScrollViewer>
            <FlowDocument>
                <Paragraph>This is a Flow Document.</Paragraph>
            <Paragraph>Start working on Flow Document.</Paragraph>
        </FlowDocument>
        </FlowDocumentScrollViewer>
