Hi all,
why we use this <html:base/> tag?
what is the purpose?
thanks & regards,

The <html:base/> tag puts an absolute reference to the jsp page generating it.

This is then used when using relative urls in the jsp so that the location of the resource you might want to include is calculated based on the location of the jsp instead of the contents of the request uri.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
