VS.NET - STOP REFORMATTING MY HTML
I *thought* I turned off this 'feature', but no matter what I do , VS.NET reformats my HTML. Perhaps I'm missing something?
This "Feature" will be removed in Whidbey. Fat lot of good it does us now. There is no turning it off.
Too bad MS won't fix all the annoying little bugs like that. I can't count how many times in the last week I've had to restart VS because of the ubiquitous "Cannot copy assembly" error.
If the new build engine for Whidbey is any indication, MS appears to be throwing away the code that doesn't work and rewriting it wholesale. I guess that's why we don't get any patches!
I heard from our local MS developer evangelist that the reason why VS.NET does the reformatting is because it uses the FrontPage engine and that the reason why it uses the FrontPage engine is so that it can implement IntelliSense. Thus, FrontPage is the price you pay for IntelliSense.
If only there was *intellisense* when you are in the VS.NET IDE trying to edit a .config file.
