[thelist] JSP question

Hi, I have a fairly simple JSP page that has this in it:

<% if (request.getParameter("epi_menuItemID").equals("acc2d82162c12ae00e8340f573a48a0c")) { %>
id="current" <% } %>

Is there a problem there? Here is the error I get:

Syntax: Unexpected symbol ignored

This page is in the context of an old Epicentric portal web site, so it's possible something else
might be affecting it - I don't know enough about Java and JSP to really know, but it seems like
this should work...

If I do <%= request.getParameter("epi_menuItemID") %> it correctly writes out the param with no
