Does it make much of a difference to learn JSP 1.1 or JSP 1.2 ?

At work we have the book :

Web Development with Java Server Pages

which got very good reviews on amazon.

I noticed that recently they came out with the second edition which covers JSP 1.2 and servlets 2.3.

The version we have is for JSP 1.1 (first edition)

Since I'm just learning JSPs - is it worth it for me to buy the second edition ?

I would learn with the book you have.  The javadocs should be enough to supplement the new fetures in 1.2 in the future.

I was hoping for a more detailed answer as to why the differences between 1.1 and 1.2 are such that learning 1.1 first if fine. I've researched this myself a bit.
