Simple Managed Language Service Sample - MyLanguageService

I read a lot of questions in VSX Forum about how to create custom language service using MPF. Most of askers can't figure out how to do that from VS SDK documentation. Most of them would like to play with the sample. I have prepared a very simple sample of managed language service, which I called just MyLanguageService. I hope it will help you to start developing a new language service.

MyLanguageService is a package for Visual Studio 2005, containing simple managed language service. I have used the latest VS SDK 4.0 RTM for Visual Studio 2005. MyLanguageService sample's functionality is to highlight the custom syntax in the files with .my extension.
