9. Conventions for the About Tag > Normalization and Standardization

Normalization and Standardization

Some of the more widely used conventions for about tags in Fluidinfo today follow a general pattern typified by the book-u convention illustrated above:

  • They map terms to lowercase and remove most punctuation but preserve accents.

  • They begin with a keyword that identifies the class of object followed by a colon (for example, book: for books and album: for albums).

  • They include at least one identifier that helps to disambiguate different objects that would otherwise map to the same about tag.

Examples of such conventions include those for books, albums, tracks, and films, such as the following:

book:nineteen eighty four (george orwell)
album:the dark side of the moon (pink floyd)
track:summertime (billie holiday)
film:the postman always rings twice (1946)
