If I've currently got a html tag highlighted in Notepad++, is there a way to automatically jump to the closing tag and vice-versa?

You might have better luck asking this on SO – Dana the Sane Aug 21 '10 at 17:18
You might be right there Dana, cheers! – keith Aug 24 '10 at 1:13
You can do this in sublime text if you install emmet plugin. Works like a charm - choose to highlight till closing tag. – r0berts Sep 28 '14 at 20:31

Yes there is, you can use the "html tag" plugin and do ctrl + t

From the plugin's description:

This plug-in provides two core functions to Notepad++: HTML and XML tag matching, like the built-in brace matching (Ctrl+B / Shift+Ctrl+B) HTML entity encoding/decoding (example: e to é and vice versa) Author: Martijn Coppoolse Source:

This plugin is extremely slow and crashes when used on ending tags in a very large XML file (20k lines). – void.pointer Apr 13 at 17:53
