Default XML Documentation to HTML

Hi, I have read in Professional C# that it is possible to generate XML documentation from the comments written in the source files, and moreover that it is possible from this XML file to generate nice looking HTML documentation.

So... the book says that one can enable this feature using the 'Build Comment Web Pages...' from the Tools menu of Visual Studio .NET. I am not using VS.NET since I like to know it all from scratch .

My problem is now... How do I make the HTML documentation from the XML file without using VS.NET? I have already made the XML file, but what about the HTML file?

Is it at all possible using the same method as VS.NET or do I have to do the XML interpretation myself ?

Thanks

Jacob.

I havent looked into the matter yet, but I
think that all .Net does is to apply an xslt to
the xml doc it has already created in which case
it is just the formating job and should well be
left with .Net only. Let me know I .Net is not
doing this and doing something else.

Now I have tried to set up a project in VS .NET, and generated the web pages.

It is not an XML style sheet (xslt), which is applied. It seems like it generates a series of pure html files; the old fashion way.

Well, I guess I just have to give in to VS.NET and in fact use it :) !

Thanks anyway

Jacob.
