The link you show doesn't seem to distinguish "tag data", and it's
really not clear to me exactly what you're trying to accomplish. Perhaps
if you could post a short "before-and-after" example?

Depending on what you want, Perl or Python--or possibly even just
awk--should be able to meet your needs, but I can't really give you a
solution until I understand the problem properly :)
