StrogMen can be used to do this with the #type command. The snippet 
identifiers appear in the StrongMen menu. It is useful, but it has 
limitations. For example it is not good for inserting html tags. In 
the example below I had to put a space after the less-than to make it 
accept the string "< blockquote>"
