adding html formatting shortcuts (ctrl b for bold, ctrl i for em, etc.)
I’m replacing an old HTML editor (homesite) with notepad++ but it doesn’t seem to be quite geared for HTML automatically. I want to be able to highlight a word and hit “control b” and have it put <strong>highlighted word</strong> like so, rather than type that entire tag out by hand each time (and also don’t want to go through 3 levels of menu each time…I can type faster than that!)
Are there any plugins that turn notepad++ more into an HTML editor vs. just a plain text editor?

In addition to the good advice from @Ekopalypse, you can also get what you want through a macro, to which a command can be assigned.
See details in this thread: Update on option to <bold>selection</bold>?
