How do you stop VS.NET IDE from reformatting HTML?

Hi,

This is super annoying FrontPage like behavior. Does
anybody know how I can stop the Visual Studio.NET IDE from
reformatting my HTML?

Thank You

You can *reduce* the amount of reformatting:

Tool > Options > Text Editor > HTML/XML > Format then uncheck the boxes in
the upper area.

The only way to *stop* from reformatting is to not use the editor.

Make sure MS knows how you feel by sending a request regarding the next
versions of VS.NET:

ms****@microsof t.com?subject=V S.NET
"Chris Lane" <rc*********@ya hoo.com> wrote in message
news:06******** *************** *****@phx.gbl.. .

Hmm, Maybe it did that cause I was in the HTML View,
anyway I closed the form and reopened it to get it back
from my last save.
Thanks again and I will be emailing them.
