Hi guys,

I have a JSF page where I'm outputting some text into a dataList (Tomohawk) i.e. a result from a form submission. I want to be able to format the the output i.e. use the <br>, <a href...> or <p> html tag inside the dataList. However JSF doesn't seem to be recognising the html tags.

Hence I've used the <f:verbatim> to insert the <br> tag, see below



Is the method correct, it seems to work.
What I dont want is for it to have repurcussions later on when my app becomes much more complex.

Thanks for your thoughts in advance, regards
Zein

Got to ask why are you using html tags?

Why not instead of <a href="" /> use <h:commandLink />?

Ahh yes John that was an oversight. <a:href .... shouldn't have been there. My main issue was the <br>, if put that there without the <f:verbatim> tags, it is ignored. Hence my question in essence is <f:verbatim> really neccasary if I just want to put need a <br> or <p>?

I hope that makes sense, essentially I have a loop and after each iteration I need a gap between what is output hence <br> or <p>.

Thanks for your thoughts
