I've one suggestion to make HTML editing smoother:

When user writes HTML attributes, he ends with a carret before the ending quote, like,  

   <input type="text|"

My suggestion is to move the carret _after_ the quote when user presses enter in this state. Definitely better than breaking your little finger reaching a right-arrow. And, adding a new line at that place doesn't make much sense anyway.

Further, this carret positioning can be done when choosing the value from the box, like in the case of <input type=", when you choose "text" and press enter. Again, no sense in placing the carret before the closing quote.

These little things make the differences which keep NetBeans being the best IDE.
Thanks for considering.
