Google weather taglib ver. 1.1

<%@ taglib uri="taglib.tld" prefix="g" %>

<g:GWeather id="A">Moscow</g:GWeather>

<% java.util.Iterator it = A.iterator();
  while (it.hasNext()) {
  com.cj.gweather.GoogleWeatherBean gb = (com.cj.gweather.GoogleWeatherBean);

  <br/><%=(gb.getDayOfWeek()!=null)?gb.getDayOfWeek():"Today"%> <%=gb.getConditionData()%>
