Confirmed in latest.
Comment 2 Henri Yandell 2009-07-11 01:47:29 UTC
Although in the latest the value is 12345678901234567890. Might be a Cactus side effect.

Cancel that. I didn't have the JSTL c: taglib imported.

This is working fine in the latest Tomcat (6) with the latest String taglib. That will be because later versions of the JSP spec (2.0+ I believe) take care of the EL execution. This was definitely a problem before 2.0 and not worth the effort to try and fix as it was JSTL implementation dependent iirc.
