I thinks you misunderstood my posts. I didn't say we should wait for JSP 2.0 
to use EL; I just said it will be much easier to develop tags when it is 
available. In fact, I already use Jakarta's evaluator in many tags I develop 
(and most of them derives from a super-class that already implements many 
helpers to evaluate EL).

You are lucky that you can use JSTL there. One of the projects I work on is 
stuck in a JSP 1.1 container :-(
