Hello.

The tag:

<cut value="${name}" />

displays the corresponding character code (such as &gt; for >) if the value contains a >,...

Any chance to escape them or what is the quickest fix?

Cheers,

Renato

If you are using JSTL tags and do not have the JSTL Specification handy, you're doing it wrong.

Grab a copy of the Spec (see JSP FAQ for link) and look up the <cut> action. All will be revealed.

Too cool!

The JSTL Spec is an easy read. It's a good idea to read through the whole thing (except for those blasted SQL tags, of course) to see what it makes available as far as functionality and options.
