Subject Re: tags build upon tags

Funny, I was just griping about this to a friend last night: that tags 
aren't composable like functions and classes.  IMO it's a major weakness 
in JSP.  There was some discussion earlier on this list, see "Using tags 
from Java code".  The short answer is you do it all yourself.
