Is there some markup to post tags?

In this question was the first time I have had occasion to use the [tag:status-completed] (), but was slightly disappointed to not see it properly represented (With a red background).

Does anyone else think this would be a nice feature for the devs to get around to implementing?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Don't think so animuson. This is about the colouring of the tag, that as I agree with Tim Stone is my fault – user66001 Feb 4 '13 at 1:13
That question perfectly identifies both ways of writing tags, and is the original feature request that got tag syntax implemented. – animuson Feb 4 '13 at 1:17
Didn't read the answers.... The accepted answer does address what my question is about; The question isn't the same as here. That OP is wondering about tags in general, I was aware of the ability to make tags look like themselves, but not (and was asking about) how to accurately represent meta tags. If I was searching for my problem, certainly wouldn't be looking at how to use markdown to format tags, as I already know how to do this on every site except meta. – user66001 Feb 4 '13 at 2:02
Your question is not different enough to warrant remaining open. It better serves as a signpost to that question. – animuson Feb 4 '13 at 2:09

Your syntax was a bit off and you created a link pointing to a tag called "status-completed" on Stack Overflow. What you wanted was [meta-tag:status-completed], which renders as desired:

I edited your original question accordingly.
