Web Designer Defaults in VS 2005

Posted on 2006-11-22
Last Modified: 2008-02-01

When developing a web application in Visual Studio 2003 I could select from the menu bar Project => Properties to bring up the project properties window for a web project. From there I could select Designer Defaults. In this dialog window existed a drop down menu for Target Schema where I could select the level of browser I wanted to design for, for example Netscape 4.0 or Internet Explorer 5.0, etc.

Where is the equivalent setting in Visual Studio 2005 please?

Much thanks ... David

There is a drop-down on the HTML Source Editing toolbar that you can use the set the Target Schema for validation.

The values are:

Internet Explorer 6.0
Internet Explorer 3.02/Netscape Navigator 3.0
Netscape Navigator 4.0
HTML 4.01
XHTML 1.0 Transitional (Netscape 7, Opera 7, Internet Explorer 6)
XHTML Frameset

You need to be viewing the HTML for a web page in order to see the toolbar.
