How can I add a vertical marker to the editor in Visual Studio?

Open regedit and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\Text Editor, and create a String Value named "Guides". Then you set it to the color and column location(s) of the marker you want to have. For example, I use RGB(192,192,192) 80, 110 to make 2 gray guides, at column 80 and 110.

After making the changes, restart Visual Studio.
