[TxMt] POLL: HTML CodeSense?

I think it's a great idea. I think just a few more HTML friendly
features would bring a lot more people over to Textmate that are
currently using Dreamweaver or BBedit.

A wishlist I would think of, but not sure if possible:

-  Can it auto close the tag when you hit the closing bracket? It
would need to be sophisticated enough to know when NOT to close a tag,
say if you had an IMG for instance.

- For the HTML editor, would it be possible to draw up a list of the
classes in your attached stylesheet when you type CLASS=""? Same goes
for ID.

- Can we make the tab key indent text, instead of ALT + TAB? Might not
be possible, just worth a check!

- I keep whinging about code coloring and I know it's not the end of
the world, but the ability to target specific tags in your color theme
would be great!

- Special Characters, is there any way to go through the document and
replace or find them all automatically? That would be handy.

- It would be nice to be able to target certain types of files in the
search and replace.

Of course, I have no idea what's out of the scope and what's possible
for you, so apologies if I am asking too much! I have no idea how to
do any of this myself either, but I'd love to help with testing if
it's a help.

Thanks for doing this!
