Improve content assist for xml in Eclipse

The default configuration for xml content assist doen't feel very convenient for real usage.When you change you maven pom.xml or maybe the spring xml-style config files, the eclipse doesn't give you much help automatically. To get assist you need to keep pressing Ctrl+Space.

Here is a simple tip to improve the user experience for editing XML files, by making auto-trigger for assist more often. Window->preferences, set

<=:. _abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz like below. (There's a space among this string, before '_').


This can help you work more smoothly with XML files in Eclipse.
