I'd tried these before, but revisited them after this email.

I never could get VEX to work on my FC4 system.  First, it requires
Sun java on the $PATH.  Then, it wouldn't open the external file
example-tutorial-en.xml, so I gave up.  Perhaps if I took time to
build it from scratch, but I'm not going to try.

The Eclipse Web Tools 1.0 release (brand, spanking new) looks good.
It is at:


where I tried the standalone, all-in-one package.  It seems to work
well, providing syntax highlighting, tag completion and structure

I couldn't find how to validate the document, however.

I installed the Fedora natively-compiled eclipse-platform and
eclipse-jdt RPM's and tried to use Eclipse's remote update against
that version.  The webtools installed OK, but then required that the
Sun java be found on the path before the gcj version.

YMMV (and probably will)
