As it happens, I haven't read David's book on JSTL.  I don't doubt (based
on past results) that he did an excellent job as well -- I just cannot
speak about it from personal experience at this point.

Any belief that there is one single "best" book on any topic, that is the
best for all users in all circumstances, would seem to me to be a little
naive though.  That's why I answered "I liked ..." instead of "the best
book is ..." and I won't try to tell you which one is best.  I also won't
recommend a book that I *haven't* read yet.

But I can see that Mark's in Friday mode already, so it's time to go back
to not paying attention to his remarks.
