As a side note, you can use mod_rewrite to bypass Unix file naming
conventions if you want to have space separated tags as a directory
under Linux.

For example, we use this at work (Red Hat Linux):

	RewriteEngine On
	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/tag/(.*)/
	RewriteRule ^(.*) /shopping/tag.php4?Tag=%1  [L]

which translates:




Is this approach correct? well, it works :-). 
And if you think long term and how uris handle UTF-8, If you are from
China and want to display a Chinese Character on your URL you need to
use the %u convention...  I believe that eventually this will be
displayed in the browser as the appropiate character, but I have no
idea what is being done in this field by the network people.

You can do all kind of creative URL stuff with mod_rewrite.
