Would it be possible (do you know) to add a new shortcut such as
"Ctrl-T" which will surround a highlit stretch of text with paired
delimiters such as <name> </name> ?  The user should be prompted for
"name" and TeXworks should add the punctuation automatically.  These
days my source files are almost invariably XML, and it is rather tedious
to have to alternate between oXygen (for the XML) and TeXworks (for the
master/steering file).
