Why not on by defaut? Turn on auto HTML attribute quotes in 2005

Holy cow! Why wasn't this on by default??? How annoying is it that when typing in the HTML Source editor window Visual Studio doesn't add the "" for you automatically?? If it's going to complain profusely about the missing quotes then add them for me ... well guess what? It's a setting.

In the "Tools Menu", under "Options" choose "Text Editor > HTML > Formatting" there is a checkbox "Insert attribute value quotes when typing".

Set this to checked. (Example below)

You'll find html coding so much quicker and easier now.
