Although Sandcastle output is supposed to match the MSDN .NET Framework 4 style, there are major differences in look and feel. For example, the Sandcastle syntax lists C#, Visual Basic, and Visual C++ syntax on the screen, while MSDN has them in tags, saving precious screen space.
1. How can I create the tabs in my Sandcastle output?
2. How can I create the exact look and feel of the MSDN pages in my Sandcastle output? I have been unable to find their style sheet.
Thanks for your help. :-)

A VS 2010/MSDN presentation style is not available for Sandcastle. Someone is working on one but it isn't ready yet (http://sandcastlestyles.codeplex.com/discussions/254455). This isn't a Microsoft effort but the goal is to eventually merge it into Sandcastle so that it is available to everyone. This is a significant task as it involves implementing a new presentation style with all of the related XSL transformations etc.

Thanks for your quick reply. I tried setting the presentation style to Hana, even though that is deprecated, and I got the tabbed structure that is not quite what I was looking for, but it will do for now. (I am a new Sandcastle user.)
Perhaps the ongoing project to create a VS2010/MSDN presentation style could be released in stages since it sounds like it will take some time for such an ambitious effort to be completed.
