You heard it here first folks.

I just added a Select Balanced HTML/XML Tag macro to the Experimental  

I've been trying different ways of making this work since I first  
started using TextMate back in, what like 2004 or something?

I've tried regex, I've tried Ruby, I've tried everything I could  
think of...
	But finally I've come up with something very simple.

The only real downside is that it's EXTREMELY slow. Like 1 second  
from running the macro until it's done. But that's WAY faster than  
using the mouse to manually select that same code, or trying to use  
the keyboard to manually select it.

This is frankly the #1 biggest missing feature of TextMate that  
directly impacts my life.

If this breaks anything, just remember that it's undoable. Command-Z  
is your friend.
	Please also report and and all problems to me with an example of the  
code that it chokes on.

If you only want to DOWNLOAD this macro alone, just visit this link  
and double-click the file.
