It's set per-language, so in theory, it could be anything, but the  
standard convention is to use ⌃⌥⇧+[first letter of the name]. So  
HTML for instance is ⌃⌥⇧H. If there are multiple matches (which  
there usually are), you'll be given a menu to pick from.

This doesn't technically open the menu at the bottom of the window  
like you asked, but I think it's what you're looking for.
