It works like this for quite some time because it allows to add attribute:

 - e.g. type


 - in completion, focus "div" and press enter (or double click on completion suggestion)
 - press Space

=> you get completion for HTML attributes, and after typing >, cc offers closing HTML tag, if any.

But it is true that it could be useful in some cases if the ">" would be completed as well. Perhaps with a bit different shortcut or via some option in completion settings for HTML.

As for the help window, the same goes with Java completion, so feel free to file it against ?editor product ?
