class X
	public static void Main ()
		var l = string.Format("{{{0:d}} }", 100); // XS shows 3 red } but actually only last } should be red
Comment 1 Ram Chandra 2014-08-21 06:56:18 UTC
I have check this issue and I observed that the first two curly braces ( {{ ) are in orange color and the third one is in red color and all the closing braces ( }}} ) are in red color. 
I have also check the same on VS 2012 and I observed that VS shows all the curly braces (opening + closing) in red color.

I am sure about it's correct behavior. Could you please suggest what should it's correct behavior ?

Comment 2 Marek Safar 2014-08-21 07:01:53 UTC
{{{0:d}} } is not formatting sequence, there should be no red text in XS. Comparing with VS is irrelevant, it does not have this feature.
Comment 3 Ram Chandra 2014-08-21 07:32:16 UTC
I am also getting the same behavior ( as mentioned Comment 1). I observed that XS display "{{{0:d}} }" in red color.
