Why add tags

Tags permit readers to find pages that address a particular subject. The tag cloud enables readers to navigate to pages on subjects of interest and lets authors review tags others are using. Tags can contain multiple words and should begin with a capital letter.

SAML logo for linking

Note: It is expected that any person using the SAML XML.org logo does so in an appropriate fashion, the logo is not modified, the design colors and aspect are retained and space around the logo is sufficient so as to prevent the logo from being construed as part of another graphic element.
