I thought I outlined my question and no it is not a homework assignment. I've used XHTML for a long time. It enforces good syntax. You leave off a '/' and it won't work. Just a personal preference. XHTML5 is still part of W3C.
Anyhow, in that simple JSP if text is input to the empty textbox and text is edited in the textbox with Xs in IE11 it prints exactly like it was before the text was edited. An empty textbox and one with Xs. So I was looking for a second opinion that maybe I declared it incorrectly or was missing something else.
(Aside from what I see is all the syntactic noise introduced by XHTML) I don't see anything overtly wrong. If IE11 is doing something weird that none of the other browsers do, the problem is pretty clearly with IE11.
As there's no JSP-ness to the issue, this has been moved to the HTML forum.
I've already seen a web page which says (paraphrased) "IE 11 doesn't show this page correctly, we don't know why, sorry." However... JSP is generating some XHTML which IE 11 screws up on, so it might be more useful to look at that XHTML directly. Okay, I see that the JSP doesn't have any logic which generates the HTML part but maybe the XML declaration might be the issue?
