Adding tags to user entries in Movable Type

As I am working on a new review system for one of my sites in Movable Type, I am having a lot of issues. One was how to let a user generated entry (a "review") have a field to add tags. It is hard to find the documentation or how to on the MT site, and I found the question asked on the MT Forums (but never answered), but the generous and gracious Dan Wolfgang (http://www.eatdrinksleepmovabletype.com/) emailed me the answer today, saving me who knows how many hours:


<textarea id="entry-tags" class="ta" name="tags" rows="2" cols="50"></textarea>

That line goes in your "Entry Form" template, and as long as you have the "'Tags" template included on your "Entry Detail" template you are good to go (and of course they also show up in your tag cloud, etc.).
