For this ext point:

<extension point="org.eclipse.wst.sse.ui.editorConfiguration">

What exactly does this element do:

<provisionaldefinition
type="preferencepages"
value="org.eclipse.wst.sse.ui.preferences.xml.colors"
target="org.eclipse.core.runtime.xml" />

I'd like to configure my own set of pref. pages for my editor. I tried to
change this prov. def using my target and my pref page, but didn't seem to
get anywhere. I can't find any detailed documentation for it either.



thanks

It's a mechanism for associating "magic string" IDs for use by
specific function. This one is for defining a list of preference
page IDs to be shown when the user invokes the Preferences action
from the editor context menu of an XML file.
http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/wst/components/sse/designs/E ditorConfiguration.html
highlights how the extension point can be used. What target string
were you using, and where did it come from?
