I am setting up a source field "Message Board" to record the name of the message board where the information being cited was posted.
When creating the field I have an opportunity to assign a gedcom tag name. I know little about the guidelines for assigning gedcom name tags.
Is there a good and simple source of gedcom standard name tags that one can access online as a guideline?
Are there any good and simple sources of information about how to create a gedcom tag so that the information contained in the field will be compatible, if imported by other people, with Reunion or other genealogy software?

Thanks,
Donna
