You can suppress the line break by setting skeleton-end-newline to nil.
To have this work for any file in html-mode you should add a
corresponding function to sgml-mode-hook in your init file, e.g.:
   (add-hook 'sgml-mode-hook (lambda nil (setq skeleton-end-newline nil)))
You can also do this via `M-x customize RET sgml-mode-hook RET'.
