I agree that it's a pain in the rear end, but it ain't the end of the world.
There's still plenty of scope for browser-neutral JSP code, and that's what
many people will aim for.  And I don't understand the comment about servlets
-- if you can solve the problem in a servlet, why can't you solve it in JSP?
Or in a system that combines servlets and JSPs?
