Hi again all, I am trying to use ActionMessages to display errors. In this particular case I am trying to display an error when the username/password don't validate. I am able to get the Message I want in question to display on the screen and now it's a matter of properly formatting the result. I am trying to figure out how to use the errors.header, errors.prefix, errors.suffix and errors.footer in my code. (That way my errors will have consistent look to them. I am learning this as I go, so this may not be the best manner in which to do this, but here is what I have cobbled together to this point:
in the jsp:
In the action: // msg is an ActionMessages variable // errors is an ActionErrors variable //the rest has been pieced together from various tutorials.
The result is that it displays my header and footer as preformatted when in actuality I am trying to get it to be interpreted as html to keep messages uniform.
Any critiques or suggestions as to how to do this better would greatly be appreciated.

What do you have in your ApplicationResources.properties
This is mine:
For me I don't have to add anything extra for my <html:errors /> to show up as a red, UL list. I don't think you need to add anything to the error.message.
Let me know what your ApplicationResources.properties looks like.
The worst thing with having everything is finding a place in the garage to keep it.

I'm using MessageResource.properties but mine looks the same as yours. Unfortuantely this is more of a cosmetic thing that has once again been pushed to the side for the moment. I am hoping to get back to it shortly. I will update this post as soon as I can come back to it.
thanks for the reply in the mean time.
