A nexus may have tags attached to it. Tags have a name, a type, and optionally some decorations.

Tags describe qualities of the nexus, in particular those that are shared with other nexuses.

A tag's name can be just about anything. A tag's type has fewer options. The tag types are listed in the table below.

You can attach any number of tags to a nexus. When viewing a nexus, you can click on a tag to create a new search for all nexuses that also have that tag.

Tags may have a number of decorations.
