  • now that has created a nicely fornatted XML script


    does Visual Studio convert it into a document or do I have to use a third party tool?

  • Hi,


    Visual Studio 2005 does not provide a means to compile HTML help from XML documentation, although it does ship with a third-party product that can build Help 2.x for integration into Visual Studio's help collections.


    You should try Sandcastle if you want to build compiled help 1.x (.chm file) or web-ready HTML help that looks like MSDN online, for example.


    I've written an open source VS add-in that integrates Sandcastle into Visual Studio.  It's called DocProject and it's available on CodePlex.


    See the following article for more information about Sandcastle:
