Response to: and escaping

Let me edit that message above because it did not display properly; here's the browser output of the two statements when select "View Source" in the browser:

a tag </tag></ br>
a tag </tag>

    Oh well, that didn't display properly either...The c:out element outputs the character entities and the "EL in template" form outputs the actual tag in this case, which ends up embedded in the underlying HTML.

      but when i write the sentence in a jsp file.
      if displays :${myValue} ${myValue} when i use the sentence

      <%@ taglib uri="" prefix="c" %>

      but when i use
      <%@ taglib uri="" prefix="c" %>
      it displays a tag </tag> ${myValue} on the screen.
      could you tell me the reason.
      i am using tomcat 5.0.16;
