When working together with a patient, and showing them their chart (e.g. test 
results) would you wish them to be able to see these tags such as the choleric 

I suppose it would help to *not* hover over the comments.

I suppose the patient could be told they should not assume how the EMR is 
configured -- for all that the patients knows, maybe such icons relate to the 
next patient(s) that are to be seen. It is possible to tell them also that 
every doctor and staff can use these tags differently (which in truth says only 
that they can be changed).

I wonder if it may be a good idea to support a menu item

        Show / hide tags

and what it should actually do. Options:

- GNUmed instance is always started with tags showing; when a person is made 
active, the tags show *unless* the user requests to hide the tags. This 
tag-hiding would be temporary and affects only the currently-in-focus patient. 
As soon as you change focus to a next person, the next person's tags
