tag
A piece of text between a left angle bracket and a right angle bracket that has a name, 
can have attributes, and is part of an element in a JSP page. Tag names are known to 
the JSP translator, either because the name is part of the JSP specification (in the case 
of a standard action), or because it has been introduced using a Tag Library (in the case 
of custom action).
