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

This is one of those tags which makes me go *unngh* because the answer to your question is "hell if I know". – casperOne Apr 3 '12 at 13:13

I assume the tag means any sort of formatting in general.

But as you've pointed out, the tag is quite pointless and generic.

I can't see it being of any use to anyone, as no one specialises in general formatting.

is too broad to be helpful.

Some of those questions is probably using two tags instead of one. For example, Talend Open-Studio Supported I/O Formats could use , Convert text to image file Android could use (instead of and ), and change format of date with PHP could use (instead of and ).

If the tag needs to be removed, the questions that could use a different tag should be first manually retagged; then the tag could be burnitated.

Well, there's over 150 questions in the tag, so what should we do about it? – TRiG is Timothy Richard Green Apr 3 '12 at 17:45
