[TxMt] Can TextMate be made to emulate VIMs eol behavior

You can hook into save by making a snippet, command or macro with key
equivalent for ⌘S (this will always be called before save)
I use this for removing trailing whitespace and making backups on  
each save.

I think the simplest solution to your problem would be to create a  
macro where you do three things:
⌘↓ (goto last line)
⌘→ (goto end of line)
↩ (new line)

save the macro and set key equivalent to ⌘S
I think to only apply to certain files by setting scope.
In your case, I think setting scope to -text.html (that's a leading  
minus sign, yes) will exclude
html files for your macro.
