I think that's definitely an IDEA bug. If you had a tag I think IDEA would start showing help information. You might want to start with a generated build file (in the menus, Tools->]]>Generate Ant Build)

You need to add the build.xml file to the Ant Build panel on the right.
Use the button to add the file and IDEA will then recognize it as an
Ant file. You may also need to start the ]]> tag as well.
