[uf-discuss] Adapting existing links as tags

I currently have several instances of pages in a sub-directory, such as:


Where the root URL of that sub-directory may be suitable as a tag.

All of the pages apart from the index file link to the latter, thus:

        <a href="index.htm">Tittesworth</a>

usually more than once from each page, occasionally with other linking
text ("Tittesworth Reservoir").

I could, presumably, change the links to:

        <a href="../tittesworth" rel="tag">Tittesworth</a>

Are there any disadvantages to doing so (in terms of search engine
ranking, for example)? Should I do so on each such link, or just once
per page?
