    Hi guys, just thought I'd share this.

    If you have any tedious repetitive HTML coding to do (for example adding specific HTML tags to loads of posts, headers, links etc) then you might want to try out Shortkeys Lite, it's freeware, not even an opt-in IIRC. I use it myself, it's real cool, you set a key combo and whenever you type that combo it will replace it with a bunch of text whatever you've written...

    For example I set the plus sign with numbers for all mine so I can do it all via NumPad... But you can use anything, maybe [ and ] or weird symbols you never use. Supports arrow keys too under the Misc Keys dropdown.

    Earlier today I had to go through all my posts and change the plain headings to <h2> for SEO purposes, and add contextual links. Would've taken AGES but I just set +1 to <h2> +2 to </h2>, +3 to <a href="http://mysite.com/"> (just had to stick the subpage on the end)... Without shortkeys I'd either have to keep the <a href> tag in clipboard and do all h2's manually or god knows what. There's tonnes of great applications for this when working on your code if there's gonna be a lot of repetition and it's saved me tonnes of time so thought I'd share it with you all.

    I only know about it because I used to use it for spamming Habbo Hotel trade rooms when I was little :D
