Tags with stars (★★★★★)

Hi, I want to implement a rating system for elements of a reading list in TaskPaper. While figuring out how I could implement such a rating, I wondered why e.g.


is interpreted as text, not as a tag.


One goal with TaskPaper is that it should be easily serializable into HTML… with tags represented as attributes names. So tags need to be valid HTML attribute names.

Thanks. Do you have ideas what I could use instead/what others use instead?

You can associate values with tags… so for example you can do @rating(1), @rating(2), etc. The nice thing about that is you can then search for just “@rating” and you’ll get all ratings… or you can search for “@rating = 2” to find only @ratings with associated value 2.
