GeneralDrop "text" code files and adopt xml based that renders on user choices xD Pin

Maybe Microsoft should do away with the idea of code being stored in "text" files and consider a xml style.

The advantages would be everyone can format code any which way they like and the actual code itself is just a big block of code.

And commenting would only be allowed in ONE style so it's not like // random /* occurances ********* of weird */ /// styles... Just have it all render as some graphical primitive, like a sticky-note colored rectangle with text?.

Other advantages would be "smart" code files... like they can preserve edit history much like a photoshop .psd file can.

Disadvantage is printing will be a area of concern... but not so much if printing of code is no longer practiced.

Another advantage is the ability to embed any type of document in-line with code as a advanced form of comment/information... like having PICTURES and PDF files and WEBPAGES as small resizable elements right their above the function that is based on their information.

If the future is 3D representation of files and code then Ms better jump on this right away :P
