RE: On the promotion and demotion of information items (was Re
I'm curious. Have you ever seen a machine.config file? If so I'd like to know why you think config file comments should be placed in an attribute simply because you seem to have some aversion to using certain aspects of XML. I can't imagine anything uglier than putting a multiline comment into an attribute simply to satisfy some perverse need to not use XML comments. ________________________________ From: Alaric B.

I think they should have just put the information in attributes and been done with it. People are free to ignore attributes they're not interested in.
