This is reasonable advice.  Another way to look at it:  if you're using 
the JSTL tags in your apps, it is very convenient to use the Struts-EL 
tags because the expression language syntax is the same.  If you're not 
using JSTL, there is not necessarily a compelling reason to use 
Struts-EL; unless, of course, you want to use it as a way to learn the 
EL syntax and semantics :-).
