Underline Unknown Symbols

If you use Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 or earlier, or are dissatisfied with the accuracy of underlines from the IDE, let Visual Assist underline symbols that are unknown or used out of context. Underlining begins only when you modify a file, so you browse code without the distraction of squiggles.
