Eclipse editors for Facelets xhtml?

What editors are people using to edit .xhtml Facelets files in Eclipse?

In the past I have always used xmlbuddy for all xml stuff but it keeps flagging errors - it does not like the jsf namespace declarations. e.g.

results in the errors

Error - Attribute "xmlns:ui" must be declared for element type "html".
Error - Attribute "xmlns:h" must be declared for element type "html".

Is there a better editor or some way to configure xmlbuddy to handle this?

I've just been using the XML editor that's part of Eclipse Ganymede. The original version of that one had a serious problem, however - reformatting the XML caused it to drop quotes and display false error messages. A recent update has repaired that.

The editor is supposed to be able to do tag/attribute hinting based on the DTD/schemas indicated. I haven't had much success with that, lately.

I am having this same problem with Facelets and Ganymede - in my case it also objects to the ui:component tags inside the body tag too.

Is there any way to turn off the excessive zeal of the xml parser?

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
