  1. Ability to disable IIS Integration and just provide a localhost URL/port for testing sites

    So people would use the HTTP Server of their choice like Apache or nginx.

            • IIS looses codepage.

              When double nesting db value the IIS looses codepage!

              If you write <input type="text" value="@db.value" name="name1"> all is okay!
              But with <input type="text" value="@if(copare == "true"){} else {@db.value}" name="name1"> codepage is lost.
              instead of the Swedish å ä ö you get &#229; &#228; &#246; which gives a error when posting.

              • In IIS, you have the option to "Add Application" which is a folder turn an ASP.NET 4 application.

                I do not use IIS because I use Windows Home Basic, So it would be great! if this were added to WebMatrix.
