Is there a Gedit plugin for highlighting HTML matching tag? If so then please suggest me.

For example in this sample:

<div> //div1
    <div> //div2
    </div> //end of div2
</div> //end of div1

if my cursor is at end of div1 then I want div1 tag to be highlighted. So that I know if I have closed my tags correctly or not.

I recommend the plugin "Zen Coding for Gedit" for fast HTML coding.
