If you press TAB key nothing happens (component loses
focus) - expected behaviour is to insert in document tab
character.

    Hi,

    you could add the following code to the JEditTextArea
    Constructor to set different focus traversal keys. In this
    case the traversal is CTRL+TAB for forward, and
    CTRL+SHIFT+TAB for backward. Pressing only the TAB key will
    insert a tab character:

    # in JEditTextArea(TextAreaDefaults)

    // focus traversal
    Set forward = new TreeSet();
    forward.add(KeyStroke.getKeyStroke(KeyEvent.VK_TAB,InputEvent.CTRL_MASK));
    Set backward = new TreeSet();
    backward.add(KeyStroke.getKeyStroke(KeyEvent.VK_TAB,InputEvent.SHIFT_MASK|InputEvent.CTRL_MASK));

    setFocusTraversalKeys(KeyboardFocusManager.FORWARD_TRAVERSAL_KEYS,forward);
    setFocusTraversalKeys(KeyboardFocusManager.BACKWARD_TRAVERSAL_KEYS,backward);

    This did not work on my editor (using JDK 1.5)

    Is jEdit syntax not being maintained anymore? There seems
    to be next to no activity whatsover?
