Could we have some description about what "completely changed" means? Right now it's impossible to tell what you are asking.

Okay, so all of the tags are disappearing. That would be normal if you had told the browser it was an HTML document. Which you probably did, if you used a JSP to output that document. Is the content type set to text/html?

Start by not using a JSP to output the document. Just copy it to the response from a servlet and set the content type correctly.
