Subject RE: custom tags passing regular html attributes through
Date Fri, 18 Aug 2000 15:27:47 GMT
Shawn,

This would still require me to allocate a map and populate it with the
attributes? (wouldn't it).  It seems to me that the purpose of using tags is
code reuse without cluttering up the page with a lot of code fragments.
Appreciate your suggestion, but it still seems unsatisfying to me, however,
if it's what I have to do, ohh well.

Pete

A third alternative is to pass a Map of attribute/value pairs that the tag
library uses to build up the underlying HTML tag.
