The problem has not been reproduced when the TAG is included in the value

In some cases the gedcom parser may recognize a string as a TAG, but it should not. It occurs when the tag is in the ID of the GEDCOM item, for instance:

  1. @FAM1@ FAM

Here the 3 first characters are recognized a the TAG for a FAM_RECORD, although they should be considered as included in the ID of the FAM_RECORD.
May be a similar problem can occur when the TAG is recognized in the value for instance
1 NOTE this includes a FAM tag
