Ah, my poor wording. 

String taglib's intended to deal just with generic bits of string
manipulation. So just things like capitalise, find double metaphone, and
count number of characters.

Most of the taglibs in the Jakarta taglib project seem to be server side,
so I'm not sure what the view is towards javascript/jsp taglibs. Utility's
validate tag seems to be the only one to use javascript.

I'm not sure if that's an intentional plan or just a natural reflection on
most jakarta work being server-side.

That said, it sounds like a nice idea. Being able to access a URL with an
example of the taglib at work and maybe a simple explanation of how a JSP
developer would use it might be a good next step?

If that's possible with your company, I'd suggest you send an email with:
[PROPOSAL] Preferences taglib

or some such, as the subject. With a simple explanation and a url to an
example. That way you can see if anyone gets enthused etc :)
