Subject Re: <c:out> tag inside <html:text> tag
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2004 12:53:44 GMT
As Max pointed out, the reason you're still seeing "html:text" could be because
you haven't included the appropriate taglib directive:

<%@ taglib prefix="html"
           uri="http://jakarta.apache.org/struts/tags-html" %>

And you might try this instead of your scriptlet:

<c:set var="styleVar">
  ...
</c:set>
<jsp:useBean id="styleVar" type="java.lang.String"/>
<html:text ... style="<%= styleVar %>"/>

Or use Struts-EL:

<%@ taglib prefix="html-el"
           uri="http://jakarta.apache.org/struts/tags-html-el" %>

<c:set var="styleVar">
  ...
</c:set>
<html:text ... style="${styleVar}"/>
