      It was, and remains reasonable, so why did someone 'who knew better' change it?
      A new windows installation of emacs is also missing 'auto complete' for matching
      closing elements?



      Previously would automatically complete to </doc>.
      It no longer does that. Again someone 'downgrading' the software?
