[annotator-dev] Support for spaces in tag names

You will need to set the "stringifyTags" and "parseTags" options to the
Tags plugin.

content.annotator('addPlugin', 'Tags', {
  parseTags: function (string) { ... return Array ... },
  stringifyTags: function (Array) { ... return String ... }

That controls how the widget expects to parse the input and to display the
model as a string in the input field. You can change these to match your
comma separator in your autocomplete plugin.
