Could someone tell me what jdbc drivers I should use to have good NLS
support in my web application using Oracle Database 10g?

Oracle have orai18n.jar library but how is it used?
Is it a utility library used with other driver or what?

Could someone please tell me,

I'm using JDK 5.0.

I don't know if anyone understands what you envisage from "NLS support" in a driver. Java used Unicode. The thin driver is a type 4 driver, so is 100% Java. Your database is a Unicode database. I don't know what other support you would need from the driver. Can you explain what support you anticipate needing?
