I use Aptana Studio 3 and I have two questions:

  1. The index file of my website is a PHP file and in this file I use HTML code and some php scripts. Aptana recognizes the PHP code and allow me to close/open pieces of code with the [-] and [+] on the left vertical bar. While this doesn't happen for the HTML tags. How can I have this feature for both PHP and HTML codes in a single PHP file?

  2. Is there a way to select a text and apply an HTML tag by clicking a button or by a shortcut? Example: I select a word and I apply the tag <b>...</b> by clicking button/shortcut.
