First a quick intro, since this my first post on the team blog. My name is Omar Khan. I’m the group program manager for the web development tools team. I manage the program management team that helps design the web tools inside of Visual Studio.
The webdevtools team has historically owned a control that shipped with IE5.5 and above. This control is the DHTML Editing Control. In order to improve security in IE7+, we took a hard look at this control and decided to remove it from Vista and IE7+.
