>I am trying to define a syntax that works in JSP and XSLT where I compute
>the class for a tag given various conditions.  The following syntax works
>in a JSP page using a custom tag for formclass.
>    <input type="text" class="<larry:formclass/>"/>
>I have a similar XSLT template for formclass.  However, processing the
>syntax above in my XML feed complains about the < preceding the namespace.
> If I change it to
>    <input type="text" class="&lt;larry:formclass/>"/>
>everything works fine.
>I would prefer identical syntax if possible [ note: the first syntax must
>remain for the JSP to work properly ].  Any thoughts?
>If I can't "fix" it, I think I will suggest this syntax and recommend
>escaping the embeded less-than and greater-than symbols.
>    <input type="text" class="&lt;larry:formclass/&gt;"/>
