Numbers not handled in tags (only when tag starts with numbers)

Steps to reproduce

  1. Enter a tag that starts with a number (e.g. #1stPhase)
  2. Press enter or space
  3. Check tags sidebar (Bug: the tag does not appear)
  4. Attempt to reference tag in another note (Bug: the tag can not be referenced in another note)
    *Works when the tag does not start with a number (e.g. #Phase1)

Expected result
