I don't know of any JSP Editors that can also do HTML for you.
You can use netbeans.org for your jsp code. However, if you need to do some fancy HTML, you can always use one of the many HTML editors out there and paste the code into netBeans.

Try using Netbeans. It comes bundled with a Tomcat server, so you can test your JSP's from within the IDE. You can even deploy a war file from the IDE.
It doesn't have a WYSIWYG HTML editor, but it does offer code completion for HTML and JSP tags. Version 3.4 (the current version) also has builtin XML capabilities.
The only catches are that there is a bit of a learning curve (so much that O'Reilly has a book about Netbeans), and it is a bit CPU intensive, due to the code completion and Javadoc integration features (you could always try turning all of that stuff off on a slower machine).
A good counter to the negatives is that Netbeans is free and open-source. It is the code base for Sun's Sun ONE Studio.
I would recommend Eclipse, but I have never tried any JSP/Servlet work in it, and I don't know how it integrates with Tomcat or other servlet containers.

I've been using IntelliJ IDEA for a while now and although it's not strictly a JSP editor, you can edit JSPs and it has the usual code completion for Java classes, etc.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
