I suggest we introduce tags clearly showing that a document class is concerned.

  • would be clearer than just and would not interfere with questions regarding books - those made of paper.

  • could be distinguished from questions regarding letters as such.

  • shows that the class is meant and not the concept including beamer.

A first glance at the tag shows that a class is meant. We could omit a tag usually.

If I would get some positive comments and the question, let's say, 10 upvotes, I would create the [tag:*-class] tags plus some synonyms. For instance, beamer would be a good synonym for but perhaps not for .

  • Looks good to me. I think that tags should help someone decide whether or not they'll be able to have a go at answering a question so the more precise the tags are, the better they are for this purpose. – Andrew Stacey Aug 21 '10 at 21:47

    Also for refining a search using the [-class] tag could be a good way, concept+class like [heading]+[book-class]. Just 100% clear: if I mean my *class, I'll get that. Not some book review. – Stefan Kottwitz Aug 21 '10 at 22:10
  • Would this mean memoir-class and koma-script-class? Because that could be confusing – Seamus Mar 22 '11 at 18:21
  • @Seamus: koma-script is not a class. If at all, then scrbook-class. However, most non-standard classes have unambiguous names. Also, we now use plural tags, classes have singular names. I'm not satisfied with book for the book class and letter for the letter class, but for now I don't see an urgent need for action. – Stefan Kottwitz Mar 22 '11 at 18:33
