I'm not even sure what you're trying to do there. If you want to paste in a fix here, I'll replace it.

I believe this is how it was supposed to look:
If I have
<a .="">text text text
typed out, I would like to type < and have vim provide the /a>, finish off the ending tag for me automatically.

Further, if the cursor is on <a .="">, is there a way to automatically move to the matching </a>?

I've looked all over the vim site, and I can't find a good answer for this. I've checked the vim cookbook, and googled around for it, and haven't found an answer.
