C# quick info provider does not honour <para> or <br> XML tags

SyntaxEditor .NET Languages Add-on for Windows Forms Forum

If I have some xmldoc such as 

/// <summary>
/// <para>Returns true if something matches.</para>
/// <para>Blah blah blah</para>
/// </summary>


/// <summary>
/// Returns true if something matches.<br/>
/// Blah blah blah
/// </summary>

it does not seem to be honoured in the actipro syntaxeditor parameter info provider. All the summary text is shown as a single line.

In Visual Studio (2022), if using the <para> tag, it inserts a blank line then addtional text. If <br/> is used, the next lot of text starts on the next line.

Hi Marc,

Thanks for the suggestion.  We will add 'para' and 'br' tag support for doccomment IntelliPrompt display in v24.1.

Thanks, looking forward to the next release.

The latest build of this product (v24.1.0) was released 4 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
