To tell you the truth, I've not see any advantage of it, but know some troubles of it:
1) If you have two identical Applets in the same page, jsp : plugin is not compilable, but html applet tags are ok.
2) Your webpage with jsp : plugin will force Java-Free-your-client-machine to download JRE, but html applet tags don't need to.
3) The applet looks slight different for unknown reasons.
Thanks!
