I need to design a content management system for a company to post their news in different presentation layouts. Is JSP a good technology to use in this situation? What is the benefit of using JSP in this situation? Thank you!

As opposed to what else? You need a dynamic engine of some sorts. JSP is what I would choose, but you haven't really given us enough info to answer your query,

Sorry for my bad wording earlier. Say your client is a publishing company and they want to go online to publish their articles and news for the first time. Their requirement is that they need to publish these articles in different presentation layouts on their website for viewing. What Java-related technology would you suggest? And what is the advantage with choosing this technology? Thank you.

Personally, I would choose JSP for the dynamic generation of the content, and CSS styling to affect diffrerent renditions given the same content.

but what is the advantage for choosing JSP? Can I also incorporate Struts?

Struts is a JSP framework so it's not something you use instead of JSP, but with JSP.

I don't recommend it, but you can use it if you wish.

Different content Management APIs are available for retrieving the contents from content mangement server.

BEA Weblogic provides integration with Documentum content management server. You can use weblogic content APIs (like RespositoryFactory, NodeOps, SearchOps, Node etc.) for the retrieval of contents (Node) from content server. You can also use different custom tags that comes with weblogic.

As far as the presentation of content is concerned, you can use jsp or some other templating technology like velocity etc.

Yep. As Bear said, JSP + CSS + Kupu (http://kupu.oscom.org/) should do the job for you.
