  6. (Optional) To define a default value for the tag, key in the value in the Default Tag Value field.
  7. (Optional) To cause the use of the default value upon attachment of the tag, turn on Default.

    The tag is listed in the Tags list box in the Tag Sets dialog.

    Note: When Tag definitions are included in a Cell, the Tag association moves to the Cell header. The Tag(s) remain associated as long as the Cell remains intact. Tag definitions included in Shared Cells are not placed since there may only be one instance of a particular Tag for one element.
