    part of string in different color

    <c:set var="typeTitle" value="${acctType}${openParen}${req}${closeParen}"/>

    display:column title="${typeTitle}">
    ...................
    .................

    Would like to put (*) in red.

    i.e
    ${acctType} in default color but
    ${openParen}${req}${closeParen}" in red.

    how to do this?

    Thanks.

    umm, not quite sure what language that is, but I'd assume you could do this:

    ${acctType}
    <span style="color: #CC0000">${openParen}${req}${closeParen}</span>

    using JSTL too.

    using JSTL and displaytag.

    yah I tried using the span in the value in cut tag but didn't work. can this be done using javascript? I am not sure how to call the js func from JSTL.

    What was the resulting output when you used the span? Maybe you need to escape the brackets.

    what do I have to do to escape the bracket?

    I am seeing as a comlipation error. IDE shows it as a undetermined <c:set> tag.
    is this what you mean by escape?

    <c:set var="typeTitle" value="${acctType}"<span style="color: #CC0000">"${openParen}${req}${closeParen}</span>"/>

    Thanks.

    Maybe \< and \>. Oh, I just noticed the quotes. Have you tried like so?

    <c:set var="typeTitle" value="${acctType}<span style='color: #CC0000'>${openParen}${req}${closeParen}</span>"/>

    Otherwise try.

    <c:set var="typeTitle" value="${acctType}\<span style='color: #CC0000'\>${openParen}${req}${closeParen}\</span\>"/>

    I'm just guessing though. I do Java/JSPs but no experience with that tag.

    got the solution finally

    <c:set var="spanred" value="<span style='color: #CC0000'>"/>
    <c:set var="spanend" value="</span>"/>

    <display:column title="${acctTypeTitle}${spanred}${openParen}${req}${closeParen}${spanend}">


    Thank you all for responding.
