Common code for drivers of tagsets of the Multext-EAST project. All the Multext-EAST tagsets use the same inventory of parts of speech and the same inventory of features (but not all features are used in all languages). Feature values are individual alphanumeric characters and they are also unified, thus if a feature value appears in several languages, it is always encoded by the same character. The tagsets are positional, i.e. the position of the value character in the tag determines the feature whose value this is. The interpretation of the positions is defined separately for every language and for every part of speech. Empty value (for unknown or irrelevant features) is either encoded by a dash ("-"; if at least one of the following features has a non-empty value) or is just omitted (at the end of the tag).
