That page calls c:set an "Other Action", which is supposed to mean that it's not a Standard Action.

I think the jsp: prefixed tags are all standard actions and everything else is not (someone please correct me if I am wrong). The primary difference is that standard tags do not require a taglib declaration to use them. Core (c and all other action tags, on the other hand, require a taglib declaration to use them.

The exam will expect you to identify standard actions.
