Encoding problem

I am using Struts with Tomcat 5
I am using bean write property as

and setting the linkValue property of testForm to
<A href='test'> abc </A>

I expect the html to be generated as
<td class="text" bgColor="#dedede"><A href='test'> abc </A></td>

but I am getting the html as
& lt ;td class="text" bgColor="#dedede"& gt ; & lt ;A href=& #39 ;test& #39 ;> abc & lt ;/A& gt ;& lt ;/td& gt ;

Therefore on the browser I am getting the value as
<A href='test'> abc </A> instead of a link

What could be the reason for this problem? Should I correct encoding somewhere?I am using UTF-8 as of now

Try using filter=false in bean write.
