Download the Jakarta JSTL implementation, unpack and
copy jstl.jar and standard.jar to WEB-INF/lib and
you should be running.

'relevant' techology?

Yes. Absolutely.

The Jakarta Taglibs page -
seems to say they are not doing a 1.2 implementation.

All Java EE 5 containers must implement JSTL 1.2, so many other
have such an implementation.

What books would you guys recommend for someone who has done ASP.NET,
Classic ASP, and PHP and understands Java SE?

If you like ASP.NET, then I think you should look at JSF.

Sun's Java EE 5 and the Glassfish project include JSTL libs, as Arne pointed
out implicitly.

For instruction I learned JSTL from the Sun Java EE tutorial:
