I'm using TextMate 2.0 (the alpha version), and <html> completion doesn't
work for me either. But you can just type CTRL+< (or CTRL+SHIFT+comma) for
a generic open/close tag, then type "html", then tab to place the caret
between the open/close tags.
If you click the cog item in the footer, you can see all commands available
for the selected language, including completions.
I hope this helps.

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
impressive. However the speaker assumes some non-obvious fundamentals.
When he types "html" suddenly <html> </html> appears on the screen
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.

What basic assumptions am I missing?
