I've encountered a couple of questions (e.g. xsl cals tables: span cells, using colspec, namest and nameend; see also https://stackoverflow.com/search?q=xml+CALS+table) in the XML/XSLT arena regarding the processing of data in the CALS table format. For those not familiar with CALS (like me), it's helpful to have an entry in the tag wiki to direct people to more info; and for those who are familiar with it, a tag helps them find the questions that are up their alley. CALS was at one time described as "the most widely adopted industry SGML representation for tables."
I just tried to create such a tag, but when I try, SO tells me I can't create a
cals tag because there is already a
cal tag; if I really want to do this, it says, raise a question on meta. So that's what I'm doing. The
cal tag refers to the Composite Application Library, which has nothing to do with CALS.
So what happens next - is a moderator supposed to come along and approve or reject this new tag proposal?
I went ahead and used the
cals-table tag, as @tohecz hinted, and edited the tag wiki entry for it. That edit is in the review queue. So I guess if that gets approved, I'll see whether
cals-table starts showing up in the autocomplete list.
I could close this question, but I'm curious to hear more about why I couldn't find
cals-table in the tag autocompletion list when I typed
cals. How would I find out that such a tag existed?
