Tagging legal source material

I thought that I'd make Jureeka a little more fun - and useful - by adding a feature that lets users create tags for legal sources found on the web. The idea is to channel the power of the masses, aka you, to label all of the delicious material that's just sitting out there.

When you're at a page that you want to label, all you need to do is press the "TAG" button on the toolbar. A dialog box will pop up in which you can write your tag:

Once I amass enough tags, I'll work on a search/recommendation feature to give you a new way to forge ahead with your legal research. Maybe I'll even release the data to the programmers out there and have a contest to see who can create the best recommendation engine.

(Note: you can enter multiple tags in the dialog box; you just need to separate them with commas or semicolons.)
