Assuming by "tag" you mean JSP tags, then the answer is no. JSP tags run on the server and emit HTML, which is then sent to the client. By the time the HTML is displayed in the browser, the tags have long since finished running.

What are you trying to accomplish?

I was going through headfirst simple Tag Handlers topic,wherein they have called the tag from html,and in the doTag() method they have coded evrything.So i am actually not able to understand where that tag came from and how is it functioning.

I think you must have misunderstood something. Tags are embedded in JSP pages and create HTML, they are not called by HTML.

While the code looks a bit mangled (could have been done by the forum software), it seems clear that it's a JSP tag, not an HTML tag. Maybe you can rephrase your question so that it's a bit clearer what you're asking?
