I see your point here. The format for the tags is always facet::tag,
with double colon. The single colons are just a normal character
there, but as there is no way of making a subtree of facets or tags, I
just went on with this format. I coul just have used a single dot (.)
or a hyphen (-) or whatever character instead of a single colon, do
you think it would make more sense?
I've been without Internet connection the whole weekend, so I couldn't
read or answer mail. Thanks for all the feedback I've been having on
this, I'm not replying to everything suggested by Alain, Richard and
you yet because I want to think about it for a while first. I will
answer later. Thanks a lot :)
I think I should also write some rationale after the way I structured the tags.
