I really, really, really HATE eclipse web tools autocomplete.

I can't stand it. It completes tags for me even if the tag has a typo


I tried everything, completely disabling "content assist" in every single language mode I could find, and it STILL throws in the stupid end-tag, which I DON'T want.

That's been bugging me for 3 years. :) – Will Jan 20 '13 at 19:46

If you have Zen Coding and Aptana you'll also need to turn off one or more of:

Eclipse > Prefs > Zen Coding > Expand abbrevs with tab key
Eclipse > Prefs > Apatana Studio > Editors > Auto insert closing tags
