Thanks for the clarification - it seems I was working from an old
version of the JSP1.1 spec or had not remebered it correctly - I just
checked the final release again and it has the following all important
sentences about XML tags:
"The JSP page to XML document mapping is not visible to JSP 1.1
containers; it will receive substantial emphasis in the next releases of
the JSP specification. Since the mapping has not received great usage,
we particularly encourage feedback in this area."

I am sure you knew this anyway - it certainly explains why its not in
Tomcat 3.x, but thanks again for the reply.
Thanks and Regards
