Hi,
Can anybody give ur thoughts on the pros and cons of using
"struts-html-el.tld" instead of "Struts-html.tld"
"struts-validator.tld" instead of "java script validations"
c.tld and fmt.tld
Also use of "core" and "format" tags of JSTL instead of "bean" and "logic" tags.
Thanks in advance

JavaScript can be turned off in a user's browser and you've no guarantees that the browser handles it the proper way anyhow.
I don't think I've faced a problem yet that couldn't be solved without EL, be it Struts or JSTL. How many levels of dynamic activity does one really need anyway? I try to stick to my html-logic-bean trifecta.
The struts validator can use JavaScript validation if you really want to. The whole validator framework is good stuff once you get over the learning-curve speedbump.
