InDesign Tags versus XPress Tags

For years we've relied on tagged text documents to ensure that outside files imported properly into QuarkXPress using XPress's style sheets. We gave our writers cheat sheets listing which tags to insert to indicate a headline, subhead, and so on.


Now that we've moved to InDesign, these tagged documents no longer work; they don't import with InDesign styles applied even though the style names are the same as they were in Quark. Isn't tagged mark-up in a text file a generic sort of thing for all page layout programs? I tried searching InDesign's Online Help, but all the information on tags apparently is about XML tagging, which is a different beast altogether.
