Double-check if the language for .html files is HTML (next to the line/ 
column count in the status bar, or ⌃⌥⇧H). This is the default  
behaviour for .html files, and would only break if you changed  
something. If that didn't work, try reverting to the default  
bundles[1]. PHP "is" HTML, or at least the scopes are largely
