Tag base

Render an HTML <base> Element

Renders an HTML <base> element with an href attribute pointing to the absolute location of the enclosing JSP page. This tag is valid only when nested inside an HTML <head> element.

This tag is useful because it allows you to use relative URL references in the page that are calculated based on the URL of the page itself, rather than the URL to which the most recent submit took place (which is where the browser would normally resolve relative references against).
