I should have provided some env specs. I'm using: tomcat 5.5.12 struts 1.2.8 os - solaris 10
I'm using the struts framework to populate a request bean for a jsp page to retrieve the value. I have verified that the form bean propertyt is correctly assigned. In the cited example the property is: "<font color=#00FF00>This is a message"
I use a jsp page for presentation -- the snippet from the jsp: <h1> <bean:write name="xxxForm" property="mystr"/> </h1>
The code you see on the browser is: <h1> *lt;font color=#00FF00*gt; This is a message </h1>
replace * with &. So it appears the data transfer from the form bean to the JSP page goes through a translator. Is this correct??
