Line Numbers in Visual Studio 2008

Today I am wrassling with the Visual Studio publisher/web site on Windows 8. As usual, there’s something funky in the web.config file. Why can’t Microsoft make a dev tool which publishes a web app to its own operating system, running its own web server without unfathomable errors in the default web.config? I’m not doing anything fancy. Generic ASP.NET with plain old C#; it could all be down in the browser with JavaScript if I wasn’t so lazy.

Anyhow, I wanted to turn on line numbers in VS so I could track down the reported error. Tools->Options->Text Editor->All Languages, Display | Line Numbers. See graphic below:
