Introduction

HTML Editor in VS2005 - Part 1

 
This article is to cover the special features + tips in VS2005 HTML Editor. Designing an HTML page has become lot easier for the developer. Almost everything is available readymade to the developer.
 
1.Strictly XHTML
The Html need to be strictly XHTML compliant.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

This line is automatically added to aspx pages and if the user wishes to use non-XHTML pages just removal of this line would do.
 
2. Easy Shift
 
In previous versions we used Shift+ F7 to switch between the Code and Design Mode. Now Shift+F7 is used to switch in HTML Design Mode to HTML Source Mode. Just F7 would transfer move aspx.cs page. Interestingly Alt+F7 gives a Tab control to select the Active Tool Windows.
( Cntrl + PageUp and Cntrl + PageDown is also used to switch between Design and Source of HTML)
 
3.Intellisense Everywhere
 
In the earlier versions HTML editor had very less intellisense, but in VS 2005 HTML editor one can find lots and lots of Intellisense.
