.config XML files are an integral part of ASP.Net and should be highlighted with XML syntax.

I filed this as a bug. It doesn't make sense for Notepad++ to include many other .Net file types but not this one, especially when an existing style is appropriate for this file type.

Discussion

  • Several other file extensions are common:

    .xsd
    .xsl, .xslt
    .rdf

    ASP.NET also adds

    .sitemap

     
  • Another ASP.Net issue:
    '.aspx' files should use ASP highlighting by default just like '.asp' files.
