To begin with, create the requirement summary that…you are trying to implement because this helps you ferret out the tags and the…attributes that you are going to need.…What you will find is when you write things down, nouns will typically become…tags and adjectives will typically become attributes. Although they may become…tag themselves, if they are somewhat complex. Verbs will typically become functions.…Once you have done that, you can identify the base tags.
