I'm just working on a project in HTML where to get lot's of <li>'s
around lines of text. Well, it's around ten lines, but it's a very good
use case for your embrace plugin. Of course there are alternate ways,
like maybe Search & Replace or lua scripts or mini scripts or anything
else, but I instantly got your embrace plugin in mind. :)

Just as a suggestion: Since there already are two more menu items about
HTML editing - at least for me - in the Tools menu ("Insert Special HTML
Characters" and "HTML Replacement") it maybe would be nice idea to have
a more general plugin for HTML and website editing where these functions
are merged into one plugin. What do you guys think about this?
