Yes, I realized too.

But we cannot do more with input tag. If you have a try, in http://wordpress.org you can hit 'Go' in the upper right corner, and it will search Search WordPress.org.
It will do the same in all search boxes because input value string is the default string if none is written.

We are using this property to add some style or info to the boxes, and it's the price.

Maybe we could use a hover div, but search boxes and tag boxes are not intented to be empty when hitting submit.

It's a quirky little bug for sure, in so far as you only get it if you deliberately choose to really.

The parser could always silently drop "Add new tag" if someone tries to add it, but then there'd be some person somewhere who wanted to add "Add new tag" as a tag.

Is this really a bug? Or are we trying to overcomplicate things to compensate for incorrect user input?

personally, i think this is an issue. i googled for this and found a lot of blogs are having this tag on their blogs apparently by mistake. just my opinion. had come here to report it myself.

Am I missing something? I don't see an "Add" button anywhere near the tag field on the post page.

I don't have it on mine due to a plugin.
