Alas, I don't teach. I do work with several academic departments,
though, to meet their needs.

I don't think I've got the latest and greatest version of it, but
html-mode.el found via anonymous ftp at in the
directory /pub/tmp. For those who haven't used it, it mostly provides
keybindings to reduce the number of keystrokes required to insert HTML
tags. It doesn't make any effort to keep you from mangling the tags,
once inserted.
