What do you mean?
I found it quite convient to do this [ '|' := cursor]:

<span id="bla|bla">foo</span>

invoke the macro and it selects:

<span id="blabla">

do it again and it selects:

<span id="blabla">foo</span>

This is also quite useful if one is in XML mode.

Yes. I will look for it. For now I'm glad that I found a method to  
select something by using a macro ;)
