a) [IBM] A mechanism used to identify certain attributes having some bearing on handling of character data. Some examples are character set identifier, code page identifier, language identifier, country indentifier, and encoding scheme identifier. b) Identification of objects, which can be handled independently of the object (like a price tag on a banana). The tag may contain information or only point to it (for example, if the information is very complex like a rule to sort French text). In this case the tag is an identification of information about the object (the text in French). Tags can be held in data dictionaries or in close connection to the data (for example in communications, where data blocks are preceeded by information about the data).
