I attached a very FIRST approach using TMTOOLS for that.

Mainly I took the ruby script 'Insert close Tag' := $TAG
[It has some tiny hooks but at the first glance it works quite well]

Then I created a SIMPLE regexp:
[One has to enhance it later!!]

Then I took that regexp for two macro:
-findNext regexp
-findPrevious regexp

Maybe you find some hints in it ;)

Of course, that command has no 'go backwards' function.
