Add custom Java syntax coloring in Eclipse

Hello,

Is it possible in Eclipse to add custom tags at Window/Preferences.../Editor/Syntax Coloring/Java?

I would like to highlight certain lines of my Java code in different color. But a couldn't add new keyword to the list. I haven't found any XML or properties file that specify these keywords.

Do you have any idea?

Thanks in advance,
Peter

That's the kind of stuff you normally do with a custom plugin.
