CopySourceAsHtml (CSAH) is a small and nice add-in for Visual Studio 2005 to copy the selected source code html-formatted to the clipboard. This is very useful if you want to paste this code into your blog (as I do here sometimes).

Unfortunately the current version 2.0.0 does not work with Visual Studio 2008 out of the box, but it is very simple to get it running.

The add-ins are located in below documents-folder in a path like this: C:\Users \Benjamin \Documents \Visual Studio 2005 \Addins. Just copy all files beginning with CopySourceAsHtml*.* to the corresponding folder for Visual Studio 2008: C:\Users \Benjamin \Documents\ Visual Studio 2008 \Addins.

Now you have to edit the CopySourceAsHtml.AddIn file with a text editor: only change at two positions in this short xml-file the Version value from 8.0 to 9.0.

After a restart of Visual Studio 2008 you should find the CopySourceAsHtml add-in in the Tools / Add-in menu and of cause in the context menu of the code editor.
