Hi all
I m trying to display different jsp for each web browser(based on user agent). I want to use different font and format when users view this on firefox, or ie. I try velocity now, but it's not seem to work . Can anyone give me an advice about what simple framework or technical that i can use ?

Thanks

Bear's answer is a bit short on details, but the way to go would be to serve particular CSS stylesheets for each browser. So in your JSPs (or whatever templating technology you're using), you'd include separate stylesheets based on the User-Agent request header. If you search for "java user-agent detection" you'll find plenty of code examples on how to do that.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
