When you iterate over a Hashtable (or any other implementation of the Map interface), the
object get for the "id" variable is actually an implementation of
the "Map.Entry" class, not the class of the value of the bean.  From this "Map.Entry" instance,
however, you can easily get to the real information:

    <bean:write name="supplier" property="value.seq_nbr" scope="page"/>

This works because a MapEntry has two properties -- key and value -- so we are using the nested
property syntax to effectively call getValue().getSeq_nbr().
