This is infuriating. I copy and paste this html from the trailhead module:

  <lightning-card title="HelloWorld" icon-name="custom:custom15">
    <div class="slds-m-around_medium">
      <p>Hello, {greeting}!</p>

Then when I press ctrl + s or when I save with the file menu it automatically throws quotes around {greeting} and {changeHandler}.

This then becomes invalidl, the error message says:

LWC1001: Ambiguous attribute value onchange="{changeHandler}". If you want to make it a valid identifier you should remove the surrounding quotes onchange=

What do I do ? I have no other extensions installed other than salesforce expansion pack.

    I'm not observing that behavior (just tried it). Are you sure you're on the latest version of VS Code, Salesforce Extension Bundle, and sfdx? Try updating everything and try again. – sfdcfox Mar 21 at 15:54
