Another question in I think the answer should be one : B.
The correct answers on the website are B and D. I don't think D is right, since you can also implement SimpleTag or IteratorTag. Can someone confirm my thought?

Consider the following description of a tag in a TLD:

Replaces emoticons such as , , and with images.

Which of the following statements regarding the above tag are correct?


Select 2 correct options.

A. It is an empty tag.

B. It may be used as an empty tag.

C. It must have a body.

D. It must implement BodyTag interface.

E. It may take an attribute named 'name'. But if present, its value must be dynamic.

If your custom tag must modify body content, extend the BodyTagSupport class. It implements BodyTag

You can also implement SimpleTag or extend SimpleTagSupport to accomplish that, right ? It is the 'must' word in D that I am worrying about.
I agree. Here's the link:
