For example, while the HTML in your .aspx file may include an < IMG> (image) tag, the image itself is typically a .jpg or .gif resource whose location is referred to in the src attribute of the < IMG> element. In addition to supporting application deployment, as discussed earlier in this section, the Project Manager has also been updated...

When Error Insight locates an error, it identifies the problem by underscoring the offending text with red squiggly...

One of the more exciting additions to the Delphi 2005 code editor is the History Manager. The History Manager, which you display by clicking the History tab when a source file is active in the code editor, allows you to view changes to your source files over time, view comments about specific versions of your source code, view the differences between the various saved versions of your files, and easily revert to any backup state or checkin. By default, the History Manager transparently...
