XML equivalent of JSP. What does that mean? Can we have an XML document that can be interpreted just like a JSP page?

As I understand it, the next JSP API 1.2 - which is in final draft stage now - will require a JSP engine to be able to interpret a JSP laid out entirely as an XML document as an alternative to the usual tags.
Of course, many of the tags are already XML compliant, but this would mean that you could not use <%= > etc. in an XML version.
You can download the 1.2 API draft from
