How to create an HTML Transparent tag

Roger Alcindor
Roger Alcindor used Ask the Experts™
This is a question regarding HTML rather than C++, I am using Embarcadero XE 10.1 Berlin to produce a web server application.
I am using a TPageProducer  VCL component which has an OnHTMLTag event handler.
The TPageProducer component uses an HTML page Template that I will code, containing one or more  HTML-transparent tags.
The event handler replaces each HTML-transparent tag with HTML code that my application will provide.

My question is, how do I code an HTML-transparent tag in my HTML Template ?

The embarcadero documentation for the event handler is shown below for clarity.

How to create a transparent tag in this context is placing a tag in the html document like  <#myparam>. .
