Mark made a good point about omitting the name. I double checked with
another app we wrote and I left the name in the tag, but it didn't cause
any 'harm'; again no beans or actions. 

You are correct that many tags won't work without using formbeans, such
as the html:form tag (unless it's changed). We did one app that was a
read only app and hence no form beans were used, but we had actions that
invoked our script engine for doing DB stuff, but again, we still had
.do urls with no actions or form beans in them.

	Interesting, I did not know this. But, you say that no form
beans are 
created. Is that so? What about the "name" attribute?

	The original poster wanted this to be able to use the Struts
tags without 
going through an action. But, if using this the form bean is not 
created, many tags will not work. (BTW, I just checked the DTD, and it 
says no action is instantiated, but says nothing about form beans).
