I second Paolo's postscript.

Adding to the please-merge-these-similar-packages discussion, I
suggest incoporating/building from/looking at the html-helper-mode
package by Nelson Minar. Html-helper-mode is based on html-mode and
I've found it to be a significant improvement--my main gripe is that
it doesn't support <P></P>...yet. I haven't seen hm--html-menus

Here's the (pseudo?) LCD Archive Entry:

;; html-helper-mode|Nelson Minar||
;; Major mode for editing HTML.|
;; 16-Mar-94|Version 2.0|

For more information--including the notable differences between
html-mode and html-helper-mode, see
