Another problem with editors that automatically add end-tags when start-tags
are created is, of course, that one has to jump over the end-tag when one is
finished inside that element. So automatically adding end-tags keep a
document more WF, but it does not necessarily save key strokes
over Nicholas' suggested approach. 

For example, if the ESC key was mapped to close the currently open tag,
that would be pretty efficient for typing.
