Thanks for the reply. However it would be useful to know what went wrong with the zen coding plugin. i had got used to the shortcuts and Emmett appears to interfere with other shortcuts I have such as php completion. I'm sure there are ways of remapping keys but that doesnt seem satisfactory.
I looked over the documentation and decided that the best course for me would be to disable the tab handler feature to "disable_tab_abbreviations": true. Is it correct that zen coding is now dead and buried as far as using it in Sublime Text is concerned with Package Control? Thanks for the help!

Maybe add an install message saying that it is deprecated (until it can be removed from package control anyways)? Could also add an update message to catch any one else who hasn't gone through an update of the repository for whatever reason.
