hi ,

I have a out puttext feild like this in my JSP page. I am using framework as JSF.

<h:outputText id="text1"

If the EndDate value is not there i am sending &nbsp; to this variable to avoid the UI distortion(Table border is missing please find the attachment ).
But it leading to a problem of XSS scripting. Even if i send ""(empty space ) the UI distortion is happeneing.

Please help me how i can avoid this issue.
