Evidence of tagging with other schemas

rel="tag" requires URLs in the format; but other tagging behavior exists "in the wild". This page is for capturing such behaviors.

Tag as query string

Tags in WikiMedia categories

Tags in element content

Potential tag spaces

(using one of the above schema)


In order to accommodate tagging behavior seen in the wild, it may be necessary to have multiple methods of marking-up tags:

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. The methods used here would be backwards-compatible.

(Class names are for illustrative purposes only.)

The rel-tag specification is a work in progress. As additional aspects are discussed, understood, and written, they will be added. These thoughts, issues, and questions are kept in separate pages.
