Coldtags - I dig the product and the support

I noticed from reading JavaLobby's Weekly News that Coldtags has a new version:

Coldbeans Software announced the major new release of Coldtags suite. This suite provides 160+ custom JSP tags for common programming tasks faced by JSP developers. And now this suite includes custom tags similar to web controls in .NET framework.

Find out more here:

I currently use the Country tag and the State tag and they're awesome (simple, but still something I needed). One feature I'd like to see is XHTML compliance for these tags, so I send them an e-mail.

Any chance of making this (and statetag) XHTML compliant? It would basically involve allow assigning an "id" attribute ("style" would be great too) and changing SELECTED to selected="selected".

Lo and behold, I got a quick reply less than an hour later:

Hello Matt,

it will be done.

Best regards,
Coldbeans support

P.S. I would like to note that the wish list for any component is open. So, feel free to suggest new features/options etc. you or your clients need and we will add them to upcoming release. Your suggestions for new components are more than welcome also.

Sweet! Note the P.S. - send your suggestions if you have any.

One Hour Later: Both tags have been updated with new attributes, and it's now XHTML-compliant. ;-D
