JSP tags are like HTML tags and they do not use <%. Instead they use < character.

JSP tags can have a "start tag", a "tag body" and an "end tag". As you may have guessed, the start and end tag both use the tag name, enclosed in < and > characters. Just has HTNL tags, the ending JSP tag starts with a / character after the < character. The tag names have an embedded colon character : in them, the part before the colon describes the type of the tag.

For example:

XML Code:
<some:tag>
body
</some:tag>

You may experience a scenario, where the tag does not require a body. In such case, the start and end can be conveniently merged together. For example:

XML Code:
<some:tag/>
Tag is closed by a /> instead of > character. Here the tag is ended immediately, and without a body.
