Can I use the tag textbox script?

What is the control that is being used in the Stack Overflow site for the Tags sections when you are asking a question.

I need a similar control in my project where the textbox needs to provide with auto suggestions based on user keyin values and also the user will be able to select multiple values from the suggested list. It would be nice if there is an option to delete the selected elements as well. I really liked the control used here in Stack Overflow. So, what is this control? Or will there be any such controls available?

I would prefer jQuery tools.
