Years ago I created websites, but I've been away from all forms of coding for several years. I purchased TextMate for because one of the screencasts at http://screencasts.textmate.org/html_text_transformations.mov was so impressive. However the speaker assumes some non-obvious fundamentals.
When he types "html" suddenly <html> </html> appears on the screen nicely formatted. Doesn't for me. Hitting the tab key just jumps the cursor to the right. Hitting return or enter pushes the cursor to a new line. What has he done to effect the transformation? He doesn't say.
I have figured out that when he typed "doctype" he then hits the tab key to present some options. That works.
I'm on a Mac OS X 10.8.3 running TextMate Version 1.5.11 (1635)
What basic assumptions am I missing?

For the longest time with the alpha Textmate have jumped to the wrong position when clicking e.g. a search result in the Find in project…, or clicking in my pdf and jump to the corresponding position in my LaTeX code.
The cursor is placed at the right position, but the window is not centered around the cursor. This means that ctrl+l works well but is necessary every time. Is this something there's a known fix for?
Trying is the first step towards failure.
