String variables in HTML/JSP

Is is possiblt to have a variable in a HTML/JSP tag instead of a hard coded value.

For example (This is a Servlet snippet)

out.println ("<p><font size=\"3\" color=\"red\"> <b> Hello <br /> </font></b> </p>"  );

Is there a way for me to make the ' Hello' into a variable? so I could change and display the message
according to my requirement?

Hi prain,

I don't know if you are looking after such a simple solution!

    String msg = "Hello";
<p><font size="3" color="red"><b><%=msg%><br/></font></b></p>

Opps. Thanks radarsh. Sorry, you have to excuse me for asking that question. You know sometimes licensed drivers also do mistakes. :-) . To say the truth, I am totally new to this HTML/JSP business and about 2 weeks ago only I started serious programming on these. So until I get a good handle on the wheel, I would do traffic violations.

Thanks any ways for all your help, including the previous answers. That helps me a lot.
Crusing well and learning well.


Good Luck in your adventure! :)
