When a this statement is overloaded, the XML docs are not tagged properly, making it very difficult to distinguish one from the other.

My sample code:

namespace Sample.API {
/** New class docs.
public class NewClass {

* This docs.

* The ID parameter docs.
override public object this[ int ID ]
get { return Value( ID ); }

    /** More docs.
     * <param name="str">
     * The str parameter docs.
     * </param>
    override public object this[ string str ]
        get { return Value( str ); }


The results:

The XML output only outputs the first This statement with the [int ID] argsstring and the "This docs" briefdescription. There is no argstring for string str, but the briefdescritpion for the 2nd This statement is documented as the detaileddescription of the first statement. There are also two parameterlists in the detaileddescription, one for ID and one for str.

The following is the XML result of the above code:

Sample::API::NewClass override object override object Sample::API.NewClass::this [int ID] this This docs. More docs. ID The ID parameter docs. str The str parameter docs. New class docs. Sample::API::NewClassthis

I've attached my configuration settings.
