This may be a silly question, but could someone tell me when generating HTML using Servlet and JSP, what correctness guarantees do I get?

I have had a hard time figuring out this.

guarantees? From whom? For what?

The generated html will be at best as good as the code you write. So if you write crappy code you get crappy html.
If you write perfect code (inconceivable but not impossible) you may get perfect html but don't count on it. It will likely be better than crappy but no more definite answer can be given.

I agree. Here's the link:
