Hi Joris,

The jsp's are 'rendered' server-side, while the browsers show the rendered output. Thus, the HTML source code should be the same for all browsers. Note that viewing the page's HTML source and viewing the page's source via Firebug or other plugins might result in different HTML code. 

Good luck,

Hi all,

I noticed something very strange.

We created an easyform containing a "date of birth" field, having date
format "dd-yy-mm":


The default jsp we used to render the form works fine in Firefox and Chrome.
But for some strange reason, the ${field.dateFormat} tag is not rendered
(empty) in Internet Explorer browsers, causing the date input field not to
be populated when a date is selected.

- local cache is disabled
- with javascript disabled, the problem is still there
- when I hard code the format 'dd-mm-yy' in the jQuery .ready function, the
date selection works just fine

Below the snippet that loads the datepicker (when viewing source in an IE

Could it be that there is some kind of browser checking happening before the
jsp is rendered?
