Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I'm asking since I was just trying to tag my own question and couldn't figure out which one I should be using. Is one supposed to be the CSS attribute and the other a more general tag? It's unclear to me. has 209 questions, and has 301.

No, they're the same. It seems that a lot of people are hypen-averse when it comes to tags. There are a lot of duplicates created this way, and there should probably be a better way of handling them than manual merges each time. – Cody Gray Mar 21 '12 at 2:18

The tags should be merged as they are really referring to the same thing. I prefer , but I don't find any difference between using one or the other.

Nowadays, it would not be possible to create , when there is already . For example, if you try to create , you get the following dialog when you click on the "Save Edits" button.
