How do I install the ZenCoding python plugin?

    I've been trying to get it to work for an hour without success. There's no documentation included in the ZenCoding zip file, so I've been guessing as to what files go where. I've managed to get it to sort-of work, but I'm running into the same problem I had with the javascript based plugin: clicking "expand abbreviation" either does nothing or it expands the code at the current insertion point in the text. Even then it will expand random characters: for example, html > body will become html > <bo></bo>dy.

    Any help would be appreciated. Zen Coding seems like it would speed up my workflow immensely if I could just get it to work!

    Here's the problem I'm running into right now: solitary abbreviations, like




    expand out as expected. Longer chains like

    div#container > section#content > nav + aside#rotate

    , on the other hand, produce nothing when I select them and click "expand abbreviation." I had the same problem with the javascript plugin.

    I'm using Notepad version 5.9.3

    Aaand never mind! Turns out the problem was the white space between all the elements. It's working beautifully now.
