VS 2005 XML comments: add other fields, author, create date etc?

P: n/a
Hi
In VS 2003 I downloaded the vbcommenter as it didnt have any built it.
It created comments like this:
'''
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
''' <summary>
''' retrieves a instance from the database and adds it to the tree
''' </summary>
''' <param name="intInstance"></param>
''' <param name="intFileID"></param>
''' <remarks>
''' </remarks>
''' <history>
''' [kh] 03/05/2006 Created
''' </history>
'''
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, with VS 2005, the commenter is built in, but I get comments like
this:

''' <summary>
''' highlights or selects a flow instance in the tree
''' </summary>
''' <param name="intFileID"></param>
''' <param name="boolSelect"></param>
''' <returns>Whether the highlight was successfull</returns>
''' <remarks></remarks>

These seem a lot less clear to me. They dont have the history field,
and also the lines at the top and bottom are missing. I cant find
settings anywhere in VS to customise how they appear, does anyone know
how to change them?

Thanks
Kevin
