JSF verbatim Tag

        

This tag renders output component (UIOutput) within the closest component. It takes the content from the body of this tag. This tag can be used to nest plain html within the JSF component tree. Any Html and jsp tags in the view tag can be nested within verbatim tag. The reason behind it is that all the content inside the f:view tag should be in the JSF component tree. When JSF component tree is rendered, it contains only JSF components. But html and JSP tags are not JSF components. So we nest the non JSF  tags to the verbatim tag that treats them as JSF components.
