The page http://struts.apache.org/1.3.8/struts-taglib/tagreference.html has been unreadable for YEARS. The output has all of the markup tags escaped, so instead of rendering a paragraph tag as the end of a paragraph, the literal string "<p>" is written. This makes the documentation worth very little.
The last time I worked on a Struts app, in May of 2007, this was the case.
The time before that that I worked on a Struts app, in October of 2006, this was the case.
I've never reported it, as I've always thought that a) someone would fix it and b) you must have already been flooded by reports. Or maybe nobody in the world except me actually reads documentation?
This really should be fixed - it reflects very poorly on the development / documentation team. I'd be glad to help, but I wouldn't have a clue where to start.
