to tag a text is to annotate it with grammatical information. Usually tagging takes the form of part-of-speech annotations but semantic tags or tags encoding other linguistic information can be used. Tagging is usually performed automatically or semi-automatically.
A tag is a word that can appear in a file to affect what is written to the host's disks. Tags can perform tasks such as selecting between blocks of text based on some condition, including other files, and manipulating property values. For example, usePassword=gc:if%password%gc:then1:gcelse0/gc:if would result in usePassword=1 being written if there was a password set in the configuration screen, and usePassword=0 if there was not.
A special string of characters embedded in marked-up text to indicate the structure or format.
