Hi,

the key * for commenting out a selected code section also works for XML, which is great. But when there's already a comment in the selection then it is changed from "<!--" to "< ! --", which is invalid. The sequence "--" is not allowed in XML comments.

Using VAX build 2029 in VS 2010.

To reproduce, create an XML file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<root>
  <foo>
    <!-- My comment -->
  </foo>
</root>

Select the <foo> lines and comment them out:
<root>
<!-- 
  <foo>
    < ! -- My comment -- >
  </foo>
 -->
</root>

Suggestion: Instead of
< ! -- ... -- >
use this:
<!- - ... - ->
