Thank you Geeta, I will give this a try.

If anyone could shed some light on exactly what these tags are doing 
under the covers (especially what attribute keys are used by default, 
how to change those, when should you, etc.), I would appreciate it. 
Otherwise, I guess I'll get into the source when I have time.
