For an in-depth discussion of this topic (including performance, etc), check out chapter 8, Tag Patterns of Professional JSP Tag Libraries.
Chapter 9 (Designing Tags and Tag Libraries) carries on this theme to discuss how best to design tags, covering aspects such as OO and component based development, performance and how to best use the tag lifecycle.
Hope that helps...
