Eclipse + Web Tools, JSP doesn't find TLDs

I recently downloaded the Eclipse Web Tools Project Plugin.
I'm having problems with the JSP editor not recognizing custom tags.

It looks like it can't find the tld files.

I've looked around for some preference telling it where to find
TLDs, but haven't been able to find anything.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Hi Ray,

The IBM WTP contributions are super buggy and full of suprises. But in fairness they are only posted for WTP consideration. Presently you must place your TLD in the same folder as your JSP file for the editor to find it. Once you get past that problem be prepared to hit others.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
