The html:xxxx tags allow struts to automatically transfer information 
between the
ActionForm and the html page. They are also module aware so a html:form 
tag knows which
application module it belongs to.

If you search in the mail-archives
   http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=struts-user&r=1&w=4
there will be more detailed information.

Also this should be covered in the on-line developers guide.
