Support for serverside Javascript

Hi All,
We have an application server (Broadvision) that supports serverside Javascript (enclosed in <% %> tags) and JSP/Servlets. Some legacy code still exist in serverside Javascript.

When I use IDEA for Java/JSP editing everything works fine but when I come to edit serverside Javascript files, which are in a different project, IDEA does not seem to like <% or %>. Is there anything I should do so that IDEA recognizes that anything inside <% %> is still Javascript, but serverside code.

Why would you use server side Javascript? Why not just use Java?

My god, what a flashback.

I realise you probably have no choice, and a realise you probably know this already, but.... working with BroadVision was without a doubt one of the most horrible experiences of my professional career. I can't believe people are still using it.

Sorry all. I haven't checked this in a while. We had a release to work on.

Yes the site I work on uses Broadvision. The new development is going on in Java(Struts) but I still have to support old site which runs on server side JavaScript.

Thank you for your suggestions. I will look for a solution in http://jetbrains.net/jira.
