For the benefit of those without the book the question is concerning the following syntax.
the directive is basically saying that EL (expression language) elements are not to be evaluated in the JSP as EL elements. This is to allow for the fact that pre-EL some folk may have used EL-like expressions in their JSP's and would like to cancel out ill-effects.

The basic point in the issue in this forum is that the directive in the JSP overrides any configurations set in the DD (deployment descriptor)

I hope that makes things clear for everyone.
I agree. Here's the link:
