Struts HTML Taglib Issue

I have the following JSP fragment:

My issue is that anything after the second <html:select> refuses to render.

The chainSelect() is a javascript function taking two select box ids and passing them to an action to populate the second select box.

The Struts action calls a service layer class to get a List of all CBTs for a Presentation, converts them to JSON via json-lib, gets the Response object's writer (after setting the content type), outputs the JSON, then returns null.

I've used Firebug to view the rendered <select> with options, and did not see anything I didn't expect to.

Does anyone have any idea why nothing renders after the second select?

Nothing looks wrong in that little code segment but it sounds like you have some invalid html. Double check all your closing tags.
