I received a query from Svata about Hints in Tasklist in context of HTML files. This seems to be of wider concern, thus I am filing it for UI review as the more general question: should hints be displayed in tasklist ? If so, then all or just some ? Etc. For more detail I copy Svata's email below:
...some hints (basically just the HTML ones) appear in tasklist.
The HTML usecase is as follows: the user wants/needs to set the severity of msg validators; HTML known no hard rules what is and what is not an error, generally it is possible to display anything - apparently the threshold between error/warning/hint might be somewhat blurred, and may well depend on personal preferences or work style.
But including hints in tasklist has non-trivial consequences: whatever is to be included in tasklist is processed during indexing (if the respective scope is selected in tasklist), and naturally the inclusion of more hints makes the indexing/parsing slower.
Another view might be this: HTML hints are "just" inspections, thus they should appear in Source->Inspect (this is not implemented to include HTML hints by now, but I consider to change it).
So the question is, which items actually SHOULD make it to the tasklist. Do we have any guideline for that ?
