XHTML editor with clipping features and validator?

I am looking for a good text editor in Linux to edit my XHTML files. I don't need wysiwyg apps as they are likely to produce bad code. In Windows I've always used Notetab Pro because of its powerful macro capabilities. For instance, I regularly have to insert specific pieces of text ( la "<p class="inline">"). So basically, I don't need that much, only:

- XHTML syntax highlighting
- clipping possibilities
- a built-in validator
- if possible, multiple tabs in one window.

I have used Quanta, Bluefish, Nedit, but I'm not fully satisied with these. Quanta was a nightmare to get plugins installed (perhaps I'm too lazy, though) and sometimes just crashed (version 3.2), Bluefish lacks clip libraries la TextPad or NoteTab. Now I try to use Nedit, but it lacks multiple tabs, which is a real pain if you work with lots of files at the same time. Besides, it looks a bit amateurish (I mean the menus).
Any of you any experience with Nedit, or Jedit (haven't tried this one yet)?
Basically, I just want to edit existing XHTML templates and transform them quickly into other documents. But that's why I 'd like to have some form of easily accessible clip library or macro, so that I just have to click once to insert a self-defined piece of text right into the code.
Thanks in advance.

Strange, I don't see my post appearing on the software forum, why is that? (I can reach it by searching, however) This is a legitimate question isn't it? I have searched the archives, but none mentioned clipping possibilities for editors.
