I am currently using JSP with JTSL for the view layer. However I have noticed that opening the jsp directly with the browser and HTML editors, that it does not render (eg. get stuff like " method="post" > appearing in the page).
Zope has page templating for HTML (TALES) that uses custom attributes on standard HTML tags. It works nicely with HTML browsers and editors. It also lets you have dummy data.
Is there anything like this for J2EE?
