The conventional tagging services like Del.icio.us, Digg, Furl etc.. let you to use individual tag or tags for each bookmark. But the human data like any other data is related to each other. This relational nature makes them inter-linked. So, hopefully there is a need to allow for "relational tagging" Consider an example in which you have tagged all your work related information as "work" and all the information regarding the new project as "New project". Now if you have to search your tags--a hypothetical case, you would have to search for both the tags. Here the Idea of Relational tagging enters. 

while tagging your information you use a NHTML tag rather than a simple text tag. Although no service is supporting this,hopefully it will become automatic in most of them. 

Lets consider the above example in greater detail-a NHTML tag or relational tag for the above tags-"work" and "New project" would look something like this--Work.

What if the number of related tags exceeds the number of characters in your NHMTL tag's word??

The present idea is to use dummy characters such as "#" to link to each of the tags that occur after running out of characters in the tag word. Each of the tags would be NHTML tags. So, a tree type structure can be implemented to show a relational nature.

The further applications of NHTML based tagging is in networked tagging. The tags of different users can be tagged with reference to their relationship.
