"JSP advocates are quick to let you know that JSP tag
libraries can help you avoid this problem"
[of mingling logic and presentation]...
"Tag libraries allow custom tags (for example, <AUTHORS />)
to be added to a JSP page, which at runtime are resolved
into code fragments in, well, tag libraries..."

" ...As long as JSP coding allows inline coding, it is very
convenient (especially when deadlines are looming) to make
last-minute changes with inline code, rather than converting
the code to a tag library..."

McLaughlin makes a pretty good argument against using JSP
tags in this article.
