Subject help with xml syntax of JSP with taglibs
Date Thu, 05 Feb 2004 20:57:39 GMT

I have a file called /foo/bar.jsp.

The file bar.jsp is an XML syntax JSP.  The file is only being used by a
'forward' therefore the URL in the browser window stays the same (for
example: http://localhost/webapp/index.jsp).

index.jsp forwards to /foo/bar.jsp like this:
<jsp:forward page="/"/>

Bar.jsp requires the use of a CSS that is located in "/css/main.css"
 I refer to the css in the XML JSP like this:
<link href="/css/main.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

The problem is that /css/main.css is not valid!  It does not generate the
proper path!   I have been advised to use this instead:
<link href="<html:rewrite page='/css/'>" rel="stylesheet" type

The problem is that the this does not work since it is not valid XML.

Am I missing something here?  How do I refer to a stylesheet in a JSP (that
will only be used by forward's) and maintain the proper paths????

Does the html or any other taglib do this for me???

Thanks in advance for the help!
