Hi all,
I am using Struts 1.0.2 and have problems to stay complete xml-conform.
I have to change some code into XML format, but I need some help.
Is there any tutorial with xml-comform JSP code ?
what can I do to fill an attribute like "alt" within <img > with conglomerated elements ?
With xml-nonconform code would it be :
<%
String filename = "abc.txt";
%>
<img alt="download this <%filename%>" />
I can use <jsp eclaration> for the the 1st part, but how to combine the stuff ?
thanks a lot for any useful idea...

Use <jsp:expression>expression</jsp:expression> (=<%= expression %>
or <jsp:text>text</jsp:text>
Another alternative would be to use JSTL (<c ut>
Hope this helps
Jesse

But I can't say <img alt="download this <jsp:expression>filename</jsp:expression>" /> ??
Can you give me an example ?
Thank you,
Kai

Here is a sample:

It's a little more complicated than <%= filename%>
Hope that helps.

Doh. Correction to the above. The < in the img and > after it should be &lt; and $amp;gt;
Sorry about that... (curse the interpreter...)
