Usually that type of functionality is built into an IDE or text editor. Vim or Vi has great functionality for that kind of thing. Most advanced text editors or IDEs have auto completion of tags and brackets for certain languages. I think they leave this out of code challenges so you have to learn when to place closing tags and brackets rather than letting an IDE do it for you. Hope that makes sense.

Thank you so much
