Thanks for your explanations.

What was really making trouble was the linking of script files in the JSP
that will be included as a special page. These scripts would be included as
part of the "pageContent" DIV, which itself was part of a HTML table and
HTML does not allow script tags at this point.
I solved the problem by rewriting ViewTemplate so that in <head> it checks
for the current request context and if it matches my special page, it will
include a MyCoolPageHeader.jsp containing all script tags. However, this
means that for every special page I would have to modify ViewTemplate and
check for some specific request context. Not the most beautiful of
approaches, but it works.

Sure. I was just somewhat surprised by his answer, but he already said it
was a misunderstanding so no problem here. My apologies if I didn't make
myself clear enough in the first place.
