    The Discussion

      Kirk, I like this series. I followed along on this one until 10:10. The AnnotationType I added in the previous step doesn't show in the drop down like it does for you. I'm using Visual Studio 2005 with VSeWSS 1.5

      On review, I see my mistake. You say to use the List Definition from Content Type new item template provided by VSeWSS, but I missed that the first 3 times through and chose plain List Definition. Great stuff! I wish this was better documented because this is the only way I see to learn this. Shouldn't it be on MSDN, too?Angel
