Matching HTML tags with VIM

If you have to work with HTML at all, the must-have VIM plugin is Matchit.

Trying to find matching tags in HTML (or often more importantly, missing tags) has always been a head-ache for me and one of the least enjoyable aspect of working with HTML.

Too often has it occurred that I go make some "simple" change to an HTML page, and to my horror when I review my work all of the sudden my once side-by-side columns have become one column on top of another. I know then I'm in for a painful game of tag matching.

With VIM and matchit though, the game isn't anywhere near as painful. Get into it.
