Tomcat 5 as opposed to Tomcat 5.5 uses the 2.3 version of the xml

2.3 from Tomcat 5

2.4 from Tomcat 5.5

EL is ignored by default if you set the web app to use the 2.3 specification. but not if you use the 2.4 specification, so check the web.xml file for your web app to see which version of the specification you are using, my guess is 2.3
