I quickly searched Connect and didn't find any related complaints or bug reports but for me, it is a real pain to edit HTML code by hand inside Visual Studio. The main reason is that the source editor almost always inserts (or omits) quotes when they should be omitted (or inserted).
Here is how it usually goes: head down, typing <p class="red">, head up - the editor is displaying <p class=""red"">! Fix it. Head down, typing.... it did it again! So I turn off "Insert attribute value quotes when typing", type in runat=, press Enter to select server from IntelliSense's drop-down and oops - the quotes are not there!
I know that I can learn what to expect when this setting is on or off but there are plenty of editors (mostly from Java world) that "just work". Take Eclipse, for example: I type in <p class= and the editor inserts two quotes automatically. If I start writing some letters, it will be just fine but if I press quote because my head is down and I didn't notice that the IDE was too clever, Eclipse will simply ignore my key stroke. Then, when my cursor is here: <p class="myClass|" and I type quote, again, it will have the same effect as pressing right arrow on my keyboard because Eclipse recognizes that the quote is already there. Very simple but very helpful.
