As can be seen filetype txt is accepted, txt.txt.tags is loaded. However
it seems to be loaded for file type (txt) where as my text files come up
as txt (UTF-8).
That's alright, the filetype is still "txt", the part "(UTF-8)" is
character encoding used to load the file.
Needless to say my tags from autocompletion don't
up. However when I tried to set the file type to php manually and saved
the tag file as php.php.tags it worked. The same with setting manual
type of "txt" and loading txt.txt.tags does not work!
Interesting. You're hitting a subtle limitation that we should probably
handle better: we cannot use tags if they are not associated with a tag
parser (which is different from a filetype).
To work around this, you can set the `tag_parser` key in the
`[settings]` section of your custom filetype to the name of another
filetype that already has a tag parser. This way, your tags will have a
proper "language" set on them and will be usable. I suggest to use a
tag parser that you don't otherwise use and doesn't have other tags yet,
so you won't get unexpected completions. I can suggest Ferite, Tcl,
COBOL, etc. -- anything you don't use and that have a tag parser.
