ReSharper identifies various problems in XML files, such as invalid attributes, incorrect document structure, etc. For instance, ReSharper warns about unexpected attribute in the XML header:


The analysis is performed by applying code inspections to the current document or in any specified scope.

Examples of Quick-Fixes


Fix XML processing instruction
If there is some problem with the processing instruction, ReSharper informs you and suggests a quick-fix to solve the problem.


After applying the quick-fix, the processing instruction is fixed according to XML rules.

Delete comment
If there is a comment inside a start tag, ReSharper provides a quick-fix to delete that comment.


After applying the quick-fix the comment is properly deleted.

Insert closing tag
If the document structure is incorrect and there is an unmatched opening tag, use this quick-fix to insert the corresponding closing tag.


After applying this quick-fix the closing id tag is inserted.
