Hi i have setup up JSTL on tomcat 4.1.12 and everything is fine...

when i setup JSTL on my ISP who's running tomcat version 4.0.3 i get the good
old error:
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: This absolute uri
(http://java.sun.com/jstl/core) cannot be resolved in either web.xml or the
jar files deployed with this application

I have installed the older tomcat fix of using crimson.jar and xalan.jar
rather than jaxp-api.jar, dom.jar, sax.jar, xercesImpl.jar and the newer
xalan.jar but still get the same error.

I have also tried putting the tld files into the WEB-INF directory and linking
to them by using the web.xml file:

<taglib>
<taglib-uri>http://java.sun.com/jstl/core</taglib-uri>
<taglib-location>/WEB-INF/c.tld</taglib-location>
</taglib>

but still get the same error. Please help, I have a whole site built in JSTL
and cannot host it on my hosting company. I will have to wait months to
transfer the domain name again.

Failing a fix for this can anyone recommend a cheap, reliable hosting company
in the uk. (I need to register .co.uk domain names.)

Thank you in advance
