Problem with taglibs

I am using myfaces 1.2.5, Tomcat 6.0, eclipse 3.4.1, jdk 1.5 for my project. I have used FACES IDE from Ameterus for development. I am facing two problems :

1) In my JSP pages sometimes compiler accepts JSF tags like <hutputText> <h:commandButton> but sometimes they are not compiled. The behaviour is random. Also text completion using cntr+space works sometime for these tags while sometime it fails. Although I m using JSP 2.x and servlet 2.5 as per Tomcat 6.x but still I am giving taglib location in my web.xml. I have copied myfaces_core, myfaces_html from lib/META-INF folder to tld folder in WEB-INF.

My sample JSP and Web.xml is as follows:
<%@ page contentType="text/html; charset=Cp1252" %>
<%@ taglib uri="" prefix="h" %>
<%@ taglib uri="" prefix="f" %>

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=Cp1252"/>
<h:panelGrid columns="2" border="0" cellspacing="5">

<hutputText value="File Name:"/>
<hutputText value="#{}"/>

<hutputText value="File Size:"/>
<hutputText value="#{myBean.myFile.size}"/>

<hutputText value="Param:"/>
<hutputText value="#{myBean.myParam}"/>

<hutputText value="Result:"/>
<hutputText value="#{myBean.myResult}"/>




2.) myfaces_core in tld folder is giving following error

cvc-elt.1: Cannot find the declaration of element 'taglib' This error is in <taglib> tag of tld.

The tag is :<taglib xmlns=""

Due to this there are warnings :
schema_reference.4: Failed to read schema document '', because 1) could not find the document; 2) the document could not be read; 3) the root element of the document is not <xsd:schema>

Please help in this regard

Please do not cross-post the same question in multiple forums. It wastes people's time when multiple redundant conversations take place. Please read this for more information.
