I read the jsp specification some time ago and I see anything about a "renderer kit" to convert the jsf tags into other types of "tags" as HTML, XML, etc tags... where I can find these "Kits"?

David,

Here's the deal. In JSF, there are UI components, and then there are renderers. UI components are responsible for the behavior (like collecting a string or displaying a string), and renderers are responsible for displaying the component (as a text box or a simple string, for example). Renderers are grouped into render kits that usually focus on a particular type of client. Standard JSF implementations include an HTML 4.01 render kit, but you could build a render kit to do things like display DHTML components, WML, SVG, or something else entirely.

Mr.Kito,
Do u mean that standard JSF implementation is only for normal HTML? Is it like there are some kinda plug-in to build a render kit to do other things, rather than normal HTML... Could you give some brief explanation on them?

Thank you...

Will Standard JSF implementations add other render kit plug-ins in the future?
