i have a doubt regarding JSF.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<%@taglib uri="" prefix="h"%>
<%@taglib uri="" prefix="f"%>
<hutputText value="Hello, world!!!"/>

this is the first program which i am trying to do in the JSF .
my doubt is -- is it mandatory to include the first two lines like

<%@taglib uri="" prefix="h"%>
<%@taglib uri="" prefix="f"%>
even for simple program.
is there any way to do this program..

Yes, you have to include those so that when the servlet container compiles your JSP it can find the taglibs.

You might be disgusted with having to put those lines in, but if you use a powerful editor, like Eclipse or NetBeans, you can make a template and not worry about retyping it.

If you're going to do any kind of serious JSF work, you'll want a powerful editor anyway.
I agree. Here's the link:
