When a tag synonym is suggested, it contains the text (synonym of <tag>) in tiny lettering -- identical to the tag description -- at the end of the description.

This is really hard to notice without very careful reading and causes confusion.

I'd like to request that this text be made to stand out somehow, or possibly change the placement or something. I liked the previous version where (s) came after the tag name -- perhaps you could put it after the number of questions, e.g:

x 3042 (s)

This would be OK too:

x 3042
        Synonym of stl
The Standard Template Library, or STL, is
not something I want to type about further.

Edit: The interface has been changed to the following:

Looks pretty good to me! I've removed the feature request, making this a discussion.

The (s) confused people too, but I agree having it as normal text at the end of the description is no better. This was actually on my to-do list to suggest a change for, heh. –  Tim Stone Aug 9 '11 at 18:56
    
Wow, yeah, is that actually there? The devs told me it had been implemented, but I haven't yet been able to see it. Guess I've never actually read all the way through the tag wiki excerpt to see if something is a synonym. –  Cody Gray Aug 10 '11 at 4:52
