It's a pain to add your own XML partitioner. We had to jump through all

take a look at the org.eclipse.wst.xsl.ui plugin and the various XSL
Partion types there. If you can work from the DOM model to determine
where you are at and what type of content assitance to add I'd do that
If you can provide a schema or dtd to use with your xml, I'd go that
route as you will get the necessary content assistance from that.
You can also implement your own Content Assitance provider that works
off the existing XML partition types and extends the existing
functionality as well.
We ended up using a combination of these methods within the wst.xsl
component to get things working.
