[thelist] is my asp style sloppy?

This is because in JSP, your JSP code is converted to a servlet, which is
proper Java, and all your interwoven code blocks, like:

<% if (b) { %>
         <p>blah blah blah</p>
<% } %>

... get translated into:

if (b) {
         out.println("<p>blah blah blah</p>");

In other words, the application server (Tomcat or whatever) converts the
"sloppy" JSP code into proper Java code for the JVM to run. This is why
when you make any changes to a JSP page, the first time you hit it there's
a slight delay as the JSP is compiled into a servlet. You can actually view
these servlet files -- they're stored in CATALINA_HOME/work (at the same
level as /webapps).
