Will the XSL really extract XML comments from a none XML file? I thought an XML file had to be valid in order to be formatted with XSL. I'll try that.

Anyhow, my main concern is with identifying the project files. Visual Studio's tool extract XML from a project's files. These files are not necessarily stored in an orderly fashion (read they are not in a tree structure); some are grouped, but some are in other folders, like IIS wwwroot folder, for external access purposes.

You need XSL.
This will enable you to extract XML comments from any
source code and output them to an XML instance. This
instance should be well-formed and valid against a DTD
or XSD such as Docbook. In which case, the instance
can be transformed to any format.

This will enable you to keep the XML documentation
woven into the source code and generate API
documentation as and when required.
