I have a large reference work - The Wordsmyth English Dictionary-Thesaurus
(WEDT) - on the web at in conjunction with the
University of Chicago's ARTFL Project. I am wondering if the selection and
definition of XML tags  can have a significant impact on the search
possibilities. It is clear that  XML   gives us a chance to mark   semantic
information.  (And a dictionary will give us a chance to create powerful
text parsers  that can mark much more information than part of speech)  But
it isn't   so clear to me how to define tags that will maximize the
flexibility of search routines. Any thoughts?
