Twice now I've tried to get the HelloTagWorld example to work and still get
the same two errors (under Tomcat 4/JSDK 1.4):

jspx is reserved and cannot be used as a tag prefix, and:

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: This absolute uri
(http://www.manning.com/jsptagsbook/simple-taglib) cannot be resolved in
either web.xml or the jar files deployed with this application
at org.apache.jasper.compiler.TagLibraryInfoImpl.(TagLibraryInfoImpl.java:194)

There is a typo in the source file for simpletags.tld where "manning" is
spelled "maning" as well (this is not causing the error, the fact that the URI
is bogus is causing the problem.)

I've isolated this problem to a configuration problem of some sort. I was
trying to run the example off a default install from jakarta.apache.org of
Tomcat, and got the error no matter what I set the uri to. However, installing
the web app under the Tomcat for my work project it works just fine. I do not
know what the configuration difference is though.

I should add they are both Tomcat 4.0.2.

I encountered the same problem, rather than fight it everywhere "jspx" occured
I changed it to "abcd". It only needs to be changed in the JSP file, so it's
not much work. Things worked fine after that.
