Subject RE: Struts, xhtml & bad tag syntax ... maybe nice in 1.7
Date Tue, 24 May 2005 15:24:25 GMT
Hi Christopher,

> This is surely down to your IDE and not Struts.

I don't think you understand the problem, because it is not related to an
IDE.

When you write:
<html:text property="whatever"/>

The HTML code generated  (when viewing the page in Explorer, Netscape,
Opera, or whatever) is:
<input type="text" name="whatever" value="">

Try it and see (do a view source in your browser).
