(This version supports Visual Studio 2013 only. Support forVisual Studio 2015 is provided here.)
Spice up your code using this free Visual Studio extention. Remarker gives you the ability to add a little snaz to your comments such as you see in the example.
It also highlights your tasks as seen.
It works on XAML and other XML pages including HTML. It even supports Visual Basic out of the box.
One nice feature is that the symbols used to mark a comment for visual modification don't necessarily have to immediately follow a comment delimiter like other extensions require. This is nice when code formatters automatically add white space after the delimiters leaving you with unworking modifiers.
Don't like the colors? No problem! Open up the Fonts and Colors dialog window within Visual Studio's Options dialog and look for tags that start with "Remarker" to change comment colors, or use the provided Remarker section in Options to change the color of Tasks (along with other configurable options).
Let us know if you like Remarker, and remember to give us a few stars.

2014 9, 29: Version 1.3
Version 1.3 contains fixes for several multi-line comment problems. Remarker's comment enhancements can now be used on multi-line comments that start with an asterisk. SQL class comments are no longer modifed by Remarker because the comment delimiter for SQL is the same as the Tiny delimiter for Remarker. If there is enough interest I will add SQL support back into Remarker, but it won't be a priority. To help with debugging Remarker I have added NLog logging, which the user can turn on or off from the Visual Studio Options panel.
2014, 9, 17: Version 1.2
This update fixes a number of issues. We strongly recommend that it be installed over older versions. Fixed in this version is an issue that some users had when opening and using the Options pages, and some logic that prevented updates from being reflected until restarting Visual Studio. Settings changes are now reflected as soon as the Options window is closed.
2014, 9, 13: Version 1.1
Fixed two bugs in the options pages. One prevented decimal points from being entered in some text fields, and another made navigation difficult among fields. Also corrected a few minor typographical errors within the extension.
