problem with code-completion for Facelets custum tags

I'm using custom tags in a facelets/jsf project, and can't figure out how to get (eclipse/JBOSS dev Studio) to recognize my custom tags. For example if I type <h: then control space the jsf tags show up with code complete. I've got my custom tag working and defined in the custum-taglib.xml, but can't figure out this last step.

my jsf page:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns=""

<ui:composition template="template.xhtml">
<ui:define name="faceletHeader">
<ui:define name="faceletContent">
<div id="menue">
value="Datei" menuItem1_Value="masterDetails_01" menuItem1_bean="#{dataTableScrollerBean}" menuItem1_action="gruss"
menuItem2_Value="masterDetails_02" menuItem2_bean="#{dataTableScrollerBean}" menuItem2_action="gruss2"
menuItem3_Value="abmelden" menuItem3_bean="#{dataTableScrollerBean}" menuItem3_action="logout" />


<h:form id="form04">

<myTag:myBaum />


and my custom.taglib.xml :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE facelet-taglib PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Facelet Taglib 1.0//EN" "facelet-taglib_1_0.dtd">

I tried creating a tld file and put it in my WEB-INF directory. I also without luck, I tried putting my tag class here. I must be missing something.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
