If I were you I would have tried JWebEngine and then Ekit

Here are more talks and suggestions.

JWebEngine could be a solution but I didn't understand if it is free or it has limitations?

JWebEngine has limitations:

JWebEngine Watermark License

The watermark license includes a free-of-charge usage of JWebEngine with an embedded watermark in the rendered output. This license is intended for evaluation purpose and does not include re-distribution of any kind (e.g. commercial or non-commercial).
By downloading JWebEngine, you automatically accept the license agreement.


Ekit is under LGPL license and it is free and can be distributed

Ekit is great but It has a bad thing: when click to view source I see the HTML in a bad format...it's something with encoding or something that I can not handle... or maybe it is something with the DefaultStyledDocument because when I have set to different StyledDocument I have seen the source in one line only(which is still bad)

Well maybe after all you want to start system browser from your java - say using Desktop class
I guess all those java stuff will have issues with some of the pages.
Of course if you need HTML editing - then it is more difficult.

No way...I need an editor...The default browser is not an editor

Well, you may look at Metphase editor:

http://www.metaphaseeditor.com/

Though frankly I'm rather pessimistic.
Unless you are dealing with some limited sorts of HTML pages, I  believe your chances
of finding some free HTML editor which would not cause problems with some
case or the other are rather slim - even  versatile enough browser (let alone editor)
is really a big deal to write.

metaphaseeditor has the same problem with Ekit (they seemed to me to be related)
