Problem with Keyword Expansion for xml files....

Problem with Keyword Expansion for xml files....


I am trying to add keyword expansion to *.xml files in one of our vss databases, but it is not working..  This is what I have in the srcsafe.ini file on the vss server.

Keyword_Masks = *.a, *.a51, *.asa, *.asc, *.asm, *.asp, *.bas, *.bat, *.bld, *.c, *.cct, *.cfg, *.cls, *.cmd, *.cpp, *.css, *.csv, *.ctl, *.def, *.dlg, *.frm, *.h, *.hpp, *.hta, *.html, *.htm, *.idl, *.inc, *.ini, *.ink, *.java, *.js, *.lnk, *.maa, *.mak, *.mc, *.mst, *.pkg, *.rc, *.rul, *.sql, *.tst, *.txt, *.xml

[Keyword Comments]
*.a   = "* "  

--rest of file extensions go here

*.xml = "<!-- "

Keywords (such as $Header: $, etc.. expand for all extensions except the *.xml files).
Also tried:

*.xml = "<![CDATA[ "
instead of *.xml = "<!-- "

Following is the line in xml file.


<!--$Header: $ -->
$Header:  $   or any other vss keywords are not expanding for xml files.   

ANy help is greatly appreciated.

thank you in advance..
