Good news after installing and testing Webtools M3. The open source
product's editor in Webtools M3 works well with Forrest documents,
has no problems with DOCTYPE-headers and finds the right grammar using an
entry in the preferences-section. It does not yet support the Forrest
catalog (you have to reference each grammar seperately), but I can
live with that for now.

Especially since code completion seems to be a much cleaner
implementation than most closed source products and works pretty

Logging of problems could be improved though. If you make a mistake in
referencing the Grammar, the editor switches to deducing the grammar
from the document even though a doctype is given and you won't notice
the problem unless you really do test cases on your grammar.
