6.5. jEdit - a good editor with Interchange/HTML/Perl colorization and CVS

I have been quite impressed with jEdit (http://www.jedit.org, and open source editor that is written in Java and runs on most platforms.

I use the interchange.xml language definition written by Chris Jesseman chris@sitemajic.net, which is available from http://www.sitemajic.net/jedit/. With this, jEdit automatically colors HTML, Perl, AND many Interchange tags very intelligently.

Further, jEdit has a CVS plugin, written by Ben Sarsgard bsarsgard@vmtllc.com, and available at: http://www.vmtllc.com/~bsarsgard/jedit.html. This plugin allows you to diff, update, and commit right from the editor.
