      Tim gave you one possible answer, with how to match it with a pattern.

      Often more useful are the 'tag block' motions.

      e.g. with the cursor anywhere inside your example HTML, you can type

      'dat' in normal mode to 'd'elete 'a' 't'ag. (includes the <p> and </p>)
      'dit' in normal mode to 'd'elete 'i'nner 't'ag. (just inside the tags)

      the 'at' and 'it' are the motions. 'd' is just one example command that
      takes a motion. Other particularly useful ones, 'y'ank, 'v'isually-select.

      :help tag-blocks
      :help {motion}
