Subject RE: Prob:Calling a bean:write inside html:text - Nesting is nice
Date Wed, 30 Jul 2003 18:28:23 GMT
Try JSTL. For example: 

  <fmt:parseDate var="aDate"  pattern="dd/MM/yyyy" value="26/12/1968" />

is equivalent to:

  <fmt:parseDate  var="aDate" pattern="dd/MM/yyyy">
    26/12/1968
  </fmt:parseDate>

The content of the second example can even be generated by nested tags.
