Location/Selection Preservation between Source and Design View

One subtle but cool feature we added was the ability to preserve your cursor/selection when you switch to/from design/source view.

For example, say you select a control or some text in HTML source view:

Figure 15

When you switch to design-view, the same element/control will be selected in WYSIWYG mode:

Figure 16

Note that this also happens the reverse way – select something in the designer and switch to source view, and the cursor and/or selection will be at the right place.

Makes switching back and forth pretty easy.
