Oh, right. So the default Movable Type template isn't publishing the  
microformat properly.

The link needs to go to the MT search script, and pass the tag name  
and blog ID, since we run multiple blogs. But I think that can be  
done with mod-rewrite.
Would "http://www.nmm.ac.uk/rog/tag/meteors/" cause any problems to a  
parser? That URL contains enough info to identify both the blog and  
the tag name.

We need to differentiate between the same tag used on different blogs  
in the same installation of MT, you see. For example, 'see all posts  
tagged with meteors' on the Observatory blog vs. the same link on the  
museum library blog.

I don't think that's an option, unless another attribute is available  
to declare the tag space. href is already taken with the target of  
the link.
