Resolving Namespace Prefixes
Viasfora will also extend the Intellisense provided by the Visual Studio XML editor: Put the cursor over an XML namespace prefix, and a tooltip will tell you what it is mapped to in that context!
Most of these features work also on the HTML editor, including Razor pages.
For Visual Studio 2015, with the new Razor Tag Helpers, a new
Viasfora Razor Tag Closing Element option has been added to ensure closing tags for Tag Helpers are rendered correctly.
