Thanks for the mention, Ted.  As far as the Struts-EL calculator, the 
calculation is actually done by the CalcAction ( -- not a helper 
bean.  The calculation could have been done inline (using EL in the 
<c:out>) as with the JSTL calculator; however, in this case, I have the 
action to which the form is submitted perform the calculation and place 
the value into request scope.

do the addition inline. Why is it done differently for Struts-EL?
