TLD Elements

You specify the character of a classic tag’s body content using the body-content element:

<body-content>empty | JSP | tagdependent</body-content>

You must declare the body content of tags that do not have a body as empty. For tags that have a body, there are two options. Body content containing custom and core tags, scripting elements, and HTML text is categorized as JSP. All other types of body content (for example, SQL statements passed to the query tag) are labeled tagdependent.
