Sharing ASP.NET user controls accross projects

We recently published a How-To on for how to share user controls across projects.  In talking with customers, one of the things they would like to do is have a common set of reusable web UI, say a navigation bar, across multiple Visual Studio projects.  The problem is that there hasn't been an easy way to do this, and creating a server control seems like a lot of work for something so simple.  To help make this easier, this article gives step-by-step instructions for creating a virtual directory for common user controls that can be reused in multiple Visual Studio projects.
