Locating Tags in Post Footer
Waldwicht leaves a comment wondering whether it is possible to place tags in the footer of a post rather than in the body of the post. None of the tools that I'm familiar with allow this, & it doesn't seem to be the most straightforward thing to do, given that the post body updates / changes w/ each post but the footer remains the same. That said, I figure if anyone knows how, you're out there. If you think this is possible, or you'd like to do it too, hit the comments!

This can be another addition to the data spat out by my Hybrid Link Field. I could add it if asked! :)

The function could look for a [F] tag before the names of the tags, and when placed in the footer, it'd generate the tags there from them!

Aditya is right, but one thing to keep in mind. If we are talking about tags that need to be spidered by technorati et al , they need to be static as technorati won't index javascript created links. So you'd have to take that into account methinks.

Another possiblity, is using a little CSS creatively you can make it appear that the tags are in the footer, matter of fact I think I know someone that does that. :-)

If you look, the technorati tags appear as if they are part of the footer, but they are still in the body of the post... just rearranged/styled with CSS. Moving the tags beneath some of the footer content might be a problem, but getting them in the same general vicinity isn't too hard.
