ReSharper helps you automatically escape illegal characters in text that you copy/paste around your code.
If the pasted text contains characters that are illegal for the current context ReSharper automatically replaces these characters with the corresponding escape sequences.
You can press Ctrl+Z immediately after pasting to undo the escaping and keep the pasted text as is.
For example, when you paste a piece of text that contains double quotes into a string literal, ReSharper automatically escapes all the quotes.
Another example is pasting a piece of code with generics into an XML doc tag: ReSharper will replace angle brackets with the corresponding escape sequences.
When pasting text inside comments, ReSharper will escape
*/ when pasted into multiline comments and replace newlines with indent and
/// when pasted into line or XML-doc comments.
