Hi Andrew,

I would like to ask a preliminary question, as I'm guessing you have a
good answer to it. In my experience we've had a number of issues with
JSTL, namely version compatibility. We've had situations where the
version chosen for development wasn't compatible with our production
environment, and JSTL URI identifiers seem more the problem than the
actual markup itself. This has made JSTL a very unstable platform for
our development work, and we've had to coordinate carefully with our
IT team to make sure we were installing all the right versions in order
to avoid this. There was no problem with JSPs or scriptlets but as soon
as we began using JSTL all hell broke loose.

Could you *briefly* describe how you've avoided this for JSPWiki?

Thanks much,
