I'm using VS2005 Pro, SP1 to modify the CSK 2.0. When i open an aspx page like Default.aspx, in design view, the pages do not display in near-WYSIWYG. They all display as just plain text.

I also have the other Club Web Site starter kit from ASP.NET and it's aspx pages do display as near-WYSIWYG ok.

Does anybody know why this is happening with the CSK 2.0?

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

It's because we use themes in the ClubStarterKit. v1 didn't use themes. Because of that, you don't see the styles in design-time. It's not our fault... Visual Studio doesn't support themes in design-time. I think they should!

What you can do is link the stylesheet from your theme folder to the stylesheet in the masterpage then take it out once you launch.
