There is a macro in the HTML bundle which makes a tag pair out of the 
current word, it's on ctrl-space. So often there's no need for special 
snippets when you just want a tag pair (i.e. write “li” and press 

The C bundle has a macro on cmd-return which does EOL + newline (I'll 
move it to a more general bundle), meaning you can press cmd-return 
anywhere on the line to get a new line below, though I see that the 
HTML bundle overloads cmd-return (to insert “<br />”). Maybe we could 
relocate that shortcut?
