The example that tripped me up recently.
A 'tagless' form of XML, editing docbook.
I wanted to close off about 3 levels of tags, say para sect2 sect1
and create a new sect1.
Because the end tags weren't there to get my cursor in-between
I just couldn't do what I wanted. Nor could I find any way to
achieve that.
