collect things more than just by namespace?

With Sandcastle,

Is there any way to collect things more than just by namespace? Are there grouping tags of some sort?

There is no built-in support like tags for modifying the auto-generated TOC.  However, if you're building using your own script then there are a few things you could do to arrange the TOC differently.

The typical Sandcastle build process will produce a toc.xml file that is eventually used to produce a TOC file for the HTML Help Workshop tool.  If you're using the CreateVSToc.xsl transformation, for example, then you could simply modify that file to change the arrangement (you'll typically find it in, C:\Program Files\Sandcastle\ProductionTransforms\CreateVSToc.xsl, but I recommend backing up the original if you decide to change it).

Alternatively, you could create another custom XSLT and apply it to the toc.xml file directly after it's been created.  Another option is to just modify the HTML Help Workshop TOC file (.hhc) directly after it's created.
