protected static void RegisterTag(
	string name,
	HtmlTextWriterTag key


Type: System.String

A string that contains the HTML tag.

Type: System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriterTag

An HtmlTextWriterTag that specifies which element to render.

The predefined markup tags of the HTML language are registered by calls to the RegisterTag method when the first HtmlTextWriter object is created. Dynamic markup tags can be registered by using the RegisterTag method at other times.

The registration table used by the RegisterTag method is static, so registration of tags applies to all HtmlTextWriter objects on the host computer.
