Subject RE: JSP Compiler produces huge HTML files with whitespace
Date Wed, 08 Sep 2004 17:47:56 GMT

Hola,
I'm not a Jasper expert, my guess is for two reasons:
- It's a slight performance hit

- There's a slight change of bugs or sub-optimal behavior.  For example
a subtle one was pointed out the other day: with trimSpaces on,
${something} followed by a space becomes just ${something} without a
space after it.  But for some HTML tags, e.g. <img>, and some browsers,
this causes different display behavior.
