The earlier versions of JSP (i.e. 1.1 and 1.2) had a mechanism for building tags where you implemented the Tag interface. In JSP 2.0 these are called "Classic Tags". "Simple Tags" are new to JSP 2.0 and provide you a simpler interface called SimpleTag. In addition to this, JSP 2.0 also allows you to build custom tags with "tag files" - small JSP fragments that can be used like a custom tag. Here is a link to some stuff I wrote on tag files.
Hope that helps.
