tags displayed inside textbox and textarea

I have a JSP page where the user can enter values and save the data.
When the page reloads I see br and displayed with the text.
I tried logging the user entered values in the server side. It displays properly.
I also did out.println separately inside the JSP. This also displays the text properly. But when I assign that text to a textbox, these tags show up.
Any clues?

p.s: I am not sure if I can post the same question in 2 forums. I have posted the same question in the JSP forum. If not allowed, Moderators, Please forgive my ignorance.

Forgiven! But not allowed. I've asked that this topic be closed. Please continue any discussion in the JSP forum, which is the more appropriate forum for this particular problem.
