New release features DTD support for content assist!

The new release of X-Men features DTD support for content assist. Just use <!DOCTYPE roottagname SYSTEM "mydtd.dtd">. Where relative paths are relative to your project directory. If it is correctly specified it should appear in the namespaces property of the file.
A dtd for xslt is included in this release.
Right now namespaces in a dtd are not supported.
Also formatting and content assist are now accessible by menu and default their key combi (Ctrl+Shift+F and Ctrl+Space)
A warning about formatting: it is still highly experimental and can cause losing tags!
