Struts tags...a problem in the real world?

Dear Struts supporter,
There seems to be a real world problem with using Struts (well, not really Struts, but JSP Tag Libraries). It seems despite zero java coding on the JSP pages, those 'funny' tags are still not digest-able by average graphic designers. I mean, if they were to use Macromedia DreamWeaver, it would not rendered the look and feel if the tags were something like this: -
<html:img page="/nice.gif" altKey="Nice"/>
<html:html locale="true"> </html:html>
<html:link page="/another.jsp"><bean:message key="another.title"/></html:link>

As opposed to the native standard HTML tags?
I'm really not sure whether Macromedia or any other popular graphic artiste tool would render these Struts JSP pages properly. Anybody here has any experience solving this real world problem?
Thanks. Any help would be much appreciated.


Thank you.<br /> <br />- Jess Sie<br /> <a href="mailto:jess@see-consulting.com" rel="nofollow">jess@see-consulting.com</a>
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
