Automatically indent HTML tags in Vim

Edit March 2024: this does not work to well. Need to find an alternative.

Set the following options:

:filetype indent on
:set filetype=html    # abbrev.  :set ft=html
:set smartindent      # abbrev.  :set si

Then move the cursor to the top of the file and indent the whole file by typing:


Or select the text to indent and press =.
