  •  I was just looking for an appropriate place (none)
    to insert my plea not to abbreviate states.  I just saw a diary about Katrina with "LA" in the tags, and wondered what it had to do with Los Angeles.

    Also, spare a thought for us foreigners who don't always know which is MT and which is MN.

    If you do have an abbreviated State tag, maybe specifying that it is one will help with the first problem, so stateLA, stateCO, etc. This will have the useful side effect that the "state" tags will all appear together in an alphabetized list of tags, like so:

    stateAK
    stateAL
    ...
    stateME
    stateMN
    stateMS
    stateMT
     etc.

    Sadly, that won't do anything about my second problem :-)
