before i have used xml and xslt to generate web pages, which is nice since i have 100% control over the result.

with jsf i have the feeling that it is great for generating functional websites where it is not important how the web page looks like.

With the tasks i have, i will recieve html templates from the designer, and i am supposed to generate the same html code (or at least that it looks the same on the screen for the end user), and here i have doubts that it is possible to (easily) do that with JSF.

Doesnt this mean that I have to create new custom components whenever i want some table with specific behaviour (e.g. the first 2 rows consist of 1 column each the third row consists of 4 columns).

or do i think it is more complex than it is?

please let me know your comments on this.

at the moment i am thinking about maybe forgetting about jsf and do xml/xslt to have full control (but of course missing the nice things that jsf brings: forgetting about handling post/get, ajax4jsf etc)

note: i am JSF newbie.
