<h:outputText value="#{}"/> will work.  If it's not working,
it's probably because #{children} is wrong or empty.  Generally, it''s
#{bean.list} so what you have there looks a little odd.

<f:verbatim>${}</f:verbatim> will not work.   $ searches the
jsp scope, not the JSF scope.   I think this scope is only used when
the page is compiled, but I don't use JSP.
