There are some tools available for creating these files.

My XML Comments FAQ:

VB Commenter:
http://www.gotdotnet.com/team/ide/
-> section "VB Commenter"

XML Documentation:
http://www.gotdotnet.com/team/vb/
-> section "XML Documentation"

VBXC - VB.NET XML Commentor:
http://vbxmldoc.tor-erik.net/index.shtml

NDOC (formerly DOC.NET):
http://ndoc.sourceforge.net/

VB.DOC:
http://vb-doc.sourceforge.net/

(It's me. I'm WALDO)

I know how to create them in C#. I know there is no inherent support for
them in VB.Net. I realize there are several tools out there to do this. My
boss doesn't trust anything made outside if our company, so my options are
to either switch to C#, which I don't really want to do, or create the files
myself. If the utilities can do it, why shouldn't I be able to?

I just want to know what are the format/schema of the files? Maybe a quick
tutorial.

There is no native support in VB.Net. But don't fret the next version will
support it. For now use NDoc - http://ndoc.sourceforge.net. It's free, and
pretty stable.

OK, so I have my xml document. How do I tell VB.Net to use it. Do I just
have it compile with the assembly? If I were in C#, I could just go to
Project Properties and tell it that this is my xml file. How do I achieve
the same effect in VB.Net?
