It depends what is considered to be a tag. Currently only language tags
are defined in Unicode. But if "Author" were considered to be a
potentially definable tag, I could cite your posting as an example of
the use of the logical character "tag commercial at", not of course as
the Unicode character but as its logical equivalent in an alternative
encoding and markup. For your posting included "@" in "From: Jill
Ramonsky <>".
