OK, I buy it that this is an explanation of why includes of non well-formed tags don't work.

Questions:

- isn't this a pointless limitation? are there real technical reasons for this?

- this should be more prominently documented in the JSP specs, IMO. I must have reads
  descriptions like the one you posted tens of times and I never interpreted that
  to mean that included JSP files need be well-formed XML 

thanks
