yes, but I find that too much work!

yes, I've been checking out surround. I like it, but the workflow is a little different: in the case of html,
say, you might type content and then command in the tags after. So, I like it, and it has obvious use in other
cases, e.g., deleting or changing surrounding items, including tags, but it's not quite the flavor or
what I've seen in some IDEs with autocompletion.
Yes, this looks great -- it is specialized for html and css.
Seems to me like surround is the best short-run fix, because it helps for more than just tag autocompletion.
I appreciate Erik's suggestion...

but it seems this would duplicate emmet-vim.
BTW - this has been one of the more fruitful mailing-list response threads I've enjoyed in awhile -- if this
is indicative of the spirit of the vim tool, then I feel fortunate to be switching to vim!
