Not currently. I don't think we should add this to HTML5, though. It's a 
somewhat narrow use case for syntactic sugar. What's more, the target 
audience (people writing HTML tutorials) are amongst the most savvy, so 
not the contingent we really should be aiming for as far as making things 
simpler goes.
