Description Max Sauer 2006-09-19 12:54:45 UTC
Inside javadoc blocks inside editor, every word leaded with '@' is emphasized as
a javadoc tag. See attached screenshot.  

We should probably emphasize only tags from following list:

NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 060919)   
1.5.0_05; Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM 1.5.0_05-b05   
Linux version 2.6.12-1.1390_FC4smp running on i386

Hm, I think that the list of tags is not very static, so we should recognize all
words that fulfill the tags requirements (as specified on the above page).

"Every '@' beginning word inside javadoc emphasized as a javadoc tag"
And this is exactly how it should work. Because everything starting with @ is javadoc tag. List you mentioned is list of
standard tags, but users can use their own custom tags with their own doclets.

Well, while it's true that technically every @ denotes a tag in javadoc the way how this feature is working right now
makes it pretty much useless. Generally, using different colors or fonts for different parts of text helps reducing
typos. IMO 99% of users only use javadoc tags from standard doclet, so showing only these tags in bold comparing to
anything after @ would really help most of us who write javadoc.

If the javadoc support wants to be really smart it could check what doclet it's using and get the list of tags from
there or it could let users add extra tags manually. I'm inclined to reopen this as RFE, but will leave the decision on
the module owners.

I agree, it is a valid RFE. Others solve this with a custom tags manager.
