Assuming you're not on a JSP 2.0 container (I assume not, or you wouldn't be
using <c:out>) you might want to switch to the Struts-EL tags instead of the
'classic' taglib.  With the ability to use expressions in the JSTL tags,
you'll quickly get frustrated at NOT being able to do it in the Struts tags.

Indexed tags are now supported within <c:forEach> loops, according to the
README.txt file included with Struts-EL.  To switch over, look in the
'contrib' directory of the Struts 1.2.7 distribution, get the .jar files and
change to:
     <%@ taglib uri="" prefix="html-el"
(Some people leave the prefix as 'html'.)

All my checkboxes-within-forEach-loops are 'multibox' not 'checkbox'.  But I
don't use indexed properties, so YMMV.
