Redesigned Syntax Coloring preference pages

    Syntax Coloring preferences for the WTP source editors now resemble those of the Java and C/C++ editors. Users can still click within the Sample text to find the matching style, however.

Reordered New XML Wizard

    The first two pages of the New XML File wizard have been reordered to conform to more typical wizard behavior. Users can now specify a file name and click Finish if they want to use the defaults or proceed by clicking Next to specify more options.
