This is the end result of a discussion on jEdit mailing list regarding improving the

The user interface could be improved as follows:
In the left hand pane where "roots:" is displayed, and the current path tree is displayed. I would recommend adding icons beneath this main root of a different colour (say yellow), that represent the favourites. This is much quicker and nicer than having to go to the 'Favorites' menu. The Favourites could also be give names... so for example I could have a favourite called "www" for the path "c:\wamp\www". The "www" would be a shorthand name for the favourite and this would appear alongside the yellow icon beneath the "roots:"

|But on linux, there is no "Roots:" at all. Everything is under /. Should Favorites:
be a sibling node to / on non-windows machines?
