  • Tags are simplified spellings, minus all accents and punctuation, used to find documents on a similar topic but with various titles.
  • Searches are matched to any part of a tag: searching for mashr will also return Mashriqu'l-Adhkar, or Egyptian will also return Egypt.
  • 1- and 2-letter words will not be searched.
  • While all documents on this website will hopefully one day be tagged, so far we've only applied a few tags to the main Collection.
        However, most events in the Chronology are now tagged.
