1. create a 1.4 or 1.5 project and remove the first ">" in the .jsp
    line <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
2. return to designer - a source file error is forced by this action.
3. press fix HTML errors button
>nothing happens  - the correct line number and error is echoed on the source file 
  error page. Fix manually. OK. Source error is removed.

4. remove the trailing bracket for e.g. </webuijsf:form> to force error dialog
   and a fix html error works ok to replace bracket but not for <webuijsf:form

Seems not to work for the opening tags.

This did not work in Leopard either. As such it is not clear if all kinds of
errors can be fixed this way.
