    using L'Hôpital's rule \[ \large \lim_{x\to0}\frac{e^{\tan x}-e^x}{\tan x-x}= \lim_{x\to0}\frac{e^{\tan x}\sec^2x-e^x}{\sec^2x-1} \] \[ \large =\lim_{x\to0}\frac{e^{\tan x}\sec^4x+e^{\tan x}2\sec^2x\tan x-e^x}{2\sec^2x\tan x} \]

    \[e^{\tan x}=1+\frac{\tan x}{1!} + \frac{\tan^2x}{2!}+\cdots\\e^{x}=1+\frac{x}{1!} + \frac{x^2}{2!}+\cdots\\e^{\tan x}-e^x=\frac{\tan x - x}{1!}+\frac{\tan^x - x^2}{2!}+\cdots\]

    each numerator has a factor \(\displaystyle \tan x - x\) \[\Large \frac{e^{\tan x}-e^x}{\tan x - x}=\frac{(\tan x - x)(\frac{1}{1!}+\frac{\tan x + x}{2!}+\frac{\tan^x+x \tan x+x^2}{3!}+\cdots)}{\tan x - x}\]
