Jeff Key has a handy tip on removing the /// comments for the default C# project templates in VS 2003. While I don't like the comments, my pet peeve is that ASP.NET uses “Grid“ layout by default. For your sanity, below are the directions for how to “go with the flow“.
Changing ASP.NET Pages from grid layout to flow layout
<body MS_POSITIONING="[!output DEFAULT_HTML_LAYOUT]"> <form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server"> </form></body></html>
Voila! You're done!
Removing Body positioning on a per-project basis
If you don't want to mess with the template documents, or you like Grid layout (I'll withold judgement of you, really) for certain applications, you can change the behavior for new files on a per project basis in Visual Studio by right clicking on the project name (Ex: “WebApplication1)” in Solution Explorer, and select “Properties”. This brings up the project properties window, under Common Properties>>Designer Defaults>>Page Layout change “Grid” to “Flow”.
