Hi,
I have a file like this:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<fo:root xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format" xmlns:jsp="http://java.sun.com/JSP/Page">
  <fo:block>&lt;fo:inline&gt;</fo:block>
  <fo:block><![CDATA[<fo:inline>]]></fo:block>
</fo:root>
and I try tomcat 5.0.19 & resin 3.0.6, and the output is:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<fo:root xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format"><fo:block>
<fo:inline></fo:block><fo:block><fo:inline></fo:block></fo:root>
The question is, is this the bugs of jsp engine, or the spec need to do
this type decoding? How can I get "<![CDATA[...]]>" as output?
and how to prevent engine decode "&lt;" to "<", use "&amp;"?
seems the engine make the simple things complicated? Should this
decode only happend when context in <jsp:text> element?
Thanks
