One thing to ensure is the well-formedness of the output, mixing the 
opening of a tag in the template and the closing of it in the java code is 
the best way to generate bad markup. It can be fixed by adding new things 
in the template (the <!-- #foo --> in the template files) to have a better 
security wrt to this issue.
