I understand you have put a lot of work into all these snippets, but if 
you want my [humble] opinion, I don't see the need to have snippets for 
all the possible things you can type in a language like HTML.  Don't 
get me wrong, I am lazy :D but I find typing <h1> A HEADER and then 
hitting opt+cmd+"."  to close the tag much easier than inserting a 
snippet called "<h1>" .  I would suggest focusing on bigger time-savers 
... like the Colorpicker command.  that thing is awesome!!  Anyway, I 
don't want to dampen your progress but I think you are asking for help 
in an area where other users may not share your vision.
