Just so it's clear, change "don't need to" to "should not".  You may get
confusing results if you use struts-el in a JSP 2.0 container.

And please use the standard struts prefixes for these.  For instance,
use "html" instead of "html-el".  Using the standard prefixes will make
conversion easier when you move to a JSP 2.0 container.  You'll just
have to change the taglib directive, and not all of your tag references.
