On a portfolio site, after a project's title & description of things done on the project, there is a "skills used" section at the very bottom. Each skill is styled as a tag. They are not clickable, nor intended to be.
While watching somebody use this portfolio site on a tablet, they kept trying to touch/click the tags. It had not dawned upon me that they resemble buttons.
How should this be addressed from a usability perspective, considering that there is no intention to make the tags clickable? (For example: clickable to a list of all portfolio projects that have that tag)
Is it acceptable to leave these particular tags styled the way they are? If not, what is better way to style them other than as a comma-separated list?
