[uf-discuss] Other tagging behaviour (in addition to rel-tag)

I've collected some examples of tagging behaviour, found in the wild,
which does not use rel-tag (or at least does not do so as currently


I've also proposed that some /additiona/ methods of tagging be made


    *   Using the element contents:

                <a class="tag"
                   Anthony Davis

        Advantage: visible data used.

    *   Using the element title:

                <a class="tag ufusetitle"
                   All sorts of cheese

        Advantage: compatible with other proposed uses of title
        attributes (replacing the abbr-design-pattern):


This would require parsers to be updated, and to have an agreed
hierarchy (say, rel-tag trumps element value, trumps title) in case more
than one method is present; but would be backwards-compatible.

(Class names are for illustrative purposes only.)
