    Hello there,

    I'm using Version Q1 2012 Internal Build (2012.1.208.4)
    i have made the following simple application:

    using System;
    using System.Linq;
    namespace JustCodeStringFormatBug
        class Program
            static void Main(string[] args)
                string stringBeforeJustCode = string.Format("Today is {0}" + ".", "Monday"); // Today is Monday.
                string stringAfterJustCode = string.Format(string.Format("Today is {0}."), "Monday"); // Format Exception          

    Here i found a bug with "Clean Code" functionality when i have expression like this one:  string.Format("Today is {0}" + ".", "Monday"); 
    "Clean Code" makes it looks like string.Format(string.Format("Today is {0}."), "Monday"); , and the problem is that these two expressions are not the same, so i get  FormatException.

    I think that this suggestion might be helpful to resolve this bug.

    1.  string.Format("Today is {0}" + ".", "Monday"); should look like string.Format(string.Format("Today is {{0}}."), "Monday");
