How about using XSL to pregenerate the JSPs? (I do this but output to
the JSP XML syntax.) Your users build up a skin config in your gui(?)
which can be used as the main source in the transformation. With this
approach you could pretty much do away with the tag files and stick them
in through the transformation. You could still use the tag files and
bring them in with the document function when indicated as necessary by
the config or a wrapping tag. (oh, and since the tag files are not
well-formed XML there might be a handy tool out there that can well-form
them for you :) ).
