Hi Jaap, This is not an easy question.
On one side we have tags, defined as "non hierarchical categories". You can associate any page with 1 or more tags. On the other side we have keywords (to be indexed). Do we want to keep these 2 "categorization items" separated? I use tags as "contexts", so I would like to keep the "tag cloud" quite short, easy to navigate. And I like to have tags at the beginning or at the end of each article, because I can see at a glance what the article is about, or where it belongs. If you can think about a way of easily inserting tags/keywords as it is now, I see no drawback in merging these two concepts. In fact, in Joomla (the CMS), sometimes you use the "keyword" field to insert "fake" tags, so apparently these two concepts are very similar and interchangeable. It all depends on how you visualize the global index (tag cloud vs alphabetical index). Let's hear what others think about it. Regards Marco Cevoli Traduttore tecnico. Grafico.
