I installed a new machine and Visual Studio 2013 and there is no design mode when editing HTML files.  Design mode appears when editing APSPX files, but not pure html.  What setting am I missing?

My recollection is that Microsoft removed design mode from Visual Studio in favor of the Browser Link where you can edit the contents of the page directly in the browser and have those edits pushed back into the source. The browser is a better HTML editor anyway as it is a true rendering of what you will get.

Here's a blog post that shows a workaround.
