Does anyone know of a good editor for both JSP and Perl (i.e. colorizing keywords, setting a different background color for comments, etc..,)? If not for both then one built for Perl? The only other site that has message boards like this is a commercial site that sells an awful editor for this purpose (Perl that is) and I doubt they would suggest someone else :-). Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Are you looking for WYSWYG JSP or just straight code tools? I am not so sure about Perl but maybe something like Sun ONE studio is good for all types of Java code development. You need a strong computer to run it though. If you are looking for JSP WYSIWYG then I think maybe Websphere is one of the only ones but it is way way expensive.

I currently use HomeSite for editing JSPs, but if you need code completion Dreamweaver MX is propably a better solution, even if it is quite a heavy weight (uses a lot of ressources) compared to HomeSite. You get trial versions of both at Macromedia's Website.
For Perl I've heard that activestate's Komodo is a good choice, but I've never worked with it.
If you just need a plain editor with good support of color coding (JSPs, Java, Perl and whatever)and no language secific features then TextPad is a really good choice.
Maybe you should ask this question in "IDE's and other tools"...

Hartmut,
I've tried activestate komodo. To tell the truth it isnt that good. The color coding of keywords and such are good but it takes forever to do anything. I'm glad you mentioned Dreamweaver MX cause thats what I'm currently using. I was always using JRun but they've stopped supporting it. It was real good and very fast. Thanks for all the responses.

Macromedia UltraDev is good one as far as I used.
