Subject Re: More on JSP in XML format
Date Fri, 24 Nov 2000 14:22:52 GMT
If you want to have a JSP page in XML syntax, you must comply 
with what is described in section 5 of the JSP Public Final Draft

More specifically:

"A JSP document has jsp:root as its root element type. The root is the place where taglibs
will insert their namespace attributes. The top element has an xmlns attribute that enables
the use of the standard elements defined in the JSP 1.2 specification.
All tag libraries used within the JSP document are represented in the root element through
additional xmlns attributes. There should be no other attributes in this element.
    xmlns:prefix2=”URI-for-taglib2”... >
JSP page
