2. What happens if you wrap all with <jsp:root> element and move your
xmlns:bar there?
(and not xmlns:foo like in your example below)

> I've also tried:
> <jsp:root xmlns:jsp="..." version="2.1" xmlns:foo="path/to/foo/ns">
>   <foo:xyz xmlns:bar="path/to/bar/ns">
>         <foo:p/>
>         <bar:q/>
>   </foo:xyz>
> </jsp:root>

3. What version of specification is specified at the top of your web.xml file?
