      As it currently stands in released versions of Tapestry, org.apache.tapestry.renderTags affects the entire application and all libraries used in it. Because of this, in order to make portable components and libraries, you must always specify the renderTag attribute in page and component templates. Otherwise, you may get results you were not anticipating if the org.apache.tapestry.renderTags setting is different.

      For example, because of this problem, the Exception page was messed up if you set org.apache.tapestry.renderTags to false in your application, because the page assumes that it is true. (Bug #1431) The renderTags attribute had to be specified everywhere in the template in order to counter this problem.

      It needs to be possible to set org.apache.tapestry.renderTags at the library level, without being overridden by the application-level settings. This makes it possible to build libraries that assume (for example) that org.apache.tapestry.renderTags is true, and use them in applications which have it set to false.

      Once this is implemented, org.apache.tapestry.renderTags should be set in the core components and contrib libraries.
