    I have an issue with visual studio 2003 on how they format
    your codes on the document window.
    When I am putting controls on the form using drag-and-drop,
    and switching to the other tab to look at the code, I dont
    liek how they format the codes. Especially the embedded
    styles on the controls.
    <asp:textbox id="TextBox1" style="Z-INDEX: 101; LEFT:
    216px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 104px"

    What i wanted is if possible have Visual Studio
    automatically separate styles from the BODY of the HTML
    file and put it on the HEAD region. For reasons of
    readability/clarity, easy access, and personal preference.
    If this is not possible, can you at least set VStudio 2003
    to write the style attributes and values all in lowercase
    or any preference? I tried setting through the options in
    this procedure:

    Tools->Options->Text Editor->CSS->Format

    sample setting:
    Style: Semi-expanded
    Capitalization: Lowercase
    BODY {
    color: red;
    font-family: Arial;

    But this does not seem to work. The style attributes
    embedded in web controls are still written in ALL-CAPS.

    Is there a way to fix this?
