Sublime Text 2: close tags shortcut

Before use Sublime Text 2 on OSX I used Smultron (another impressive lightweight editor). Well, Smultron has this easy to use Tag completion shortcut (Command + t) and today I was wondering how to do the same in Sublime.

Playing around I discover that you just need to use the below shortcut.

on mac:

Option + Command + .

on windows:

Alt + .

Done, your tag is closed.

As far as I can tell, ST2 has default support for tag autocompletion by using tab. Example: type div, then hit TAB, and you get <div></div>. It works beautifully on my ST2 install (osx) without any additional packages.
