Greetings.

I cannot decipher how the following:

<bobtag: example="The ${'${'}jim} is an EL expression">

prints:

"The ${jim} is an EL expression"

I know it has something to do with escape sequences but I cannot figure it out.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I take test in 15 days.

Sincerely,

Gerald Bustamente

${'${'} gets evaluated to ${. Rest stays the same.
