Is 1/x a homeomorphism from x>0 to y>0? 1) No. $\displaystyle y = \lim_{x\rightarrow \infty}1/x = 0,$ 0 $\displaystyle \not\epsilon$ y>0 2) Yes. $\displaystyle \lim_{x\rightarrow a}1/x =1/a$ $\displaystyle \epsilon$ y>0 for every a in x>0 It's a legitimate question.

For f(x) =1/x from x>0 to y>0 $\displaystyle \lim_{x\rightarrow 0}\frac{1}{x}$ doesn't exist, but not relevant. For f(x) = x on x>0 $\displaystyle \lim_{x\rightarrow 0}x=0$, but not relevant. homeomorphism requires continuity for every x of x>0. If this is point you were trying to make, I accept it; but not relevant to OP since I was questioning the other end.

$\displaystyle \lim_{x\rightarrow a}1/x =1/a$ for all a in x>0. a=$\displaystyle \infty$ is not a number. In general, if f homeomorphic from A to B, $\displaystyle \lim_{x\rightarrow a}f(x) = f(a)$ $\displaystyle \epsilon$ B for all a in A. a=$\displaystyle \infty$ is not a number. That simple, logical, explanation resolves all issues, including tan.

Yes, all convergent sequences in A map to convergent sequences in B. That's been the idea right from the start, hasn't it?

Completeness or limits at infinity have nothing to do with this. e$\displaystyle ^{x}$ continuous for all x$\displaystyle \geq$0 makes sense, e$\displaystyle ^{x}$ continuous at $\displaystyle \infty$ doesn't make sense: $\displaystyle \lim_{x\rightarrow \infty}f(x)= f(?)$
