Setting the XML source suggestion strategy used by content assist

You can customize the formatting of the suggestions given by content assist by choosing a suggestion strategy preference. When the suggestion strategy is set to Strict, suggestions that are grammatically valid will be displayed first in the list of options and highlighted by bold icons. Other suggestions that are applicable to this element's scope but are not grammatically valid will be displayed lower in the list with de-emphasized icons. When the suggestion strategy is set to Lax, all suggestions will displayed in the list with de-emphasized icons.

To set the suggestion strategy used by content assist, complete the following steps:
  1. Click Window > Preferences and select XML > XML Files > Editor
  2. Beside Suggestion strategy in the Content assist section, select the appropriate setting (Strict or Lax).
  3. Click Apply, then OK to save your settings
