Syntax-Aware Editors

A syntax-aware editor is a text editor that color-codes programming language elements, provides automatic indentation and element completion, and more. Some examples are listed here. Most of them do not specifically support JSP syntax, but can be configured to handle JSP elements as well, and are frequently recommended on the jsp-interest mailing list:

Emacs (GNU Project),

A powerful editor that can do almost anything and runs on pretty much any platform. Emacs can be configured for mixed HTML and Java mode using the html-helper-mode.el and multi-mode.el modules. The jsp-interest mailing list archive has more details about this:

HomeSite (Allaire),

An HTML editor with support for JSP, ASP, JavaScript, VBScript, and more. Available for Windows only.

JPad Pro (Modelworks Software),

A Java IDE with support for editing customized HTML, for Windows only.

SlickEdit (MicroEdge, Inc.),
