Is there any Swing Layout Manager which can be used to layout the components using Swings and obtain the HTML output based on the layout done.

I checked with TableLayout but it doesnt support the output or converting the layout to HTML code.

Basically i am looking to build a HTML editor with features like adding new custom controls apart from the standard ones supported in HTML. The custom controls could be like a Navigation control having buttons to move between records of a form, Date control having text field along with date icon for invoking pop-up calendar and so on. This Swing application will be used to develop the user interface for the maintenance screens of my web application. This is a "Form Builder" in which the forms are used in web application.

If you have any idea of already existing Swing layout which supports this or if i need to build or extend over the existing layout manager which caters to the above requirement then please let me know.

Thanks for the time.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
