I got my tag synonym request the wrong way round. I wanted to suggest that [iis-7.5] become a synonym for [iis7.5] with [iis7.5] being the master tag.

However, upon reviewing the existing IIS tags and comparing them to technology tags that have a version suffix (for example, [asp.net-1.1], [asp.net-2.0], [asp.net-mvc-2]), perhaps we should re-tag all of the [iisversion] questions to [iis-version] to be more consistent with the convention adopted for other technology tags?

The synonym you suggested has now been voted in, and preferring hyphenated version numbers seems to work better for most tags.

It makes sense to rename [iis5] to [iis-5] (123 questions) and the same for 6 (×1,070) and 7 (×1,785), but, for now, as long as just one tag is used for each version, they can always be renamed later.
