Proper Forum for HTML/JavaScript discussions

Now that HTML and JavaScript is being/planned to be supported by IDEA, perhaps there should be a forum dedicated to those discussions.
Right now I am not sure where to go to look for discussions on those subjects.

Hi,

It seems that j2ee newsgroup could be considered quite suitable for such
serverside discussions.

I suggest forming a jetbrains.intellij.eap.web newsgroup for that, or
even jetbrains.intellij.eap.html and jetbrains.intellij.eap.javascript
groups.

Joining it with J2EE is not a very correct thing to do since J2EE
involves the server side of applications run over the internet.

Application front end may be a browser, a C# program talking XML RPC, an
applet or any other technology that can communicate in HTTP, and thus I
think we should focus the groups rather than have an all-in-one group.

Looking at the Irida feature list http://www.intellij.net/eap/products/idea/irida.jsp, I don't see that javascript will be fully supported.

I would really like reformat code, and basic navigation like Find Usages and refactoring like Change Name to work.

Even better would be if some basic errors like syntax errors and undefined methods/variables were flagged.

It is unclear to me if Reformat JSP page will also reformat any embedded javascript inside ]]> tags.

That's what I was thinking when I posted the original message.
