Virtually synonymous means that two tags mean the same thing in practise. Variant spellings (web2.0 and web20, or colour and color) and plurals (hack and hacks) are usually virtually synonymous. Siblings are not virtually synonymous (cars and trucks).Very cool. This might allow Freshtags to pull synonymous content from multiple blogs, or enable TagOverlay to overlay synonyms as well as tags onto the site you're processing, & that's only the beginning. Great work!
