but I was too fast with my reply. XMLBuddy is cool, but the schema 
doesn't include the ant tags...

But I found something else... In Eclipse, go to 
Window->preferences->Ant->runtime->Tasks and add 
/webtest/ant/WebtestTask.class from /lib/WebtestTask.jar ...

Afterwards, the Eclipse Ant Plugin knows about the webtest task and the 
nested <steps> and <config> tag. But nothing else...

Could there be a way to tell Eclipse about the rest of the steps?
