Hi,
Following is the jsp code




The problem that I am getting is. It does not convert & into Escape HTML form..

Is there any taglib or other method available to convert special character into HTML escape character.

Thanks,
Saumil

And for doing it in a place where tags cannot be used:

${fn:escapeXml(value)}

Read the JSTL Spec for more information.

"it didn't work" is the most useless phrase you could post here.

What did happen? What did you expect to happen? What do you want to happen?
