For bugs and features the best place is to create an issue for them

Hmm, I tried your example and it works as you desire for me. I'm using  
Eclipse 3.4.1.  As I tab it continues to push the next line (line 2)  
out in indentation increments, which is also true for lines 3 and 4. I  
tried this in a file that only contains your example.  Maybe an  
Eclipse setting?

Yea, this would be a good feature, certainly the next feature to be  
worked on :)  the following plugin has this type of functionality:

However, Velocitywebedit has grown a little stale, and I'm not sure  
how well it works currently.  I've thought about moving my updated  
changes into Velocitywebedit, or getting what I need from  
Velocitywebedit.  I havn't dove into code yet so I'm not sure what is  
more practical.
