Query strings are not currently considered part of a tag space URL,  
so parsers are properly assigning "mt-search.cgi" as the tag, as it's  
the last portion in your URL path.  If running your own tag space is  
important, you can probably accomplish tag space URLs (e.g. http:// 
www.nmm.ac.uk/tag/meteors/) with Apache's mod_rewrite, as described  

http://microformats.org/wiki/rel-tag-faq (See Q&A #4)

Otherwise, you can use an existing tag space on an external site.
