Coding udev rules

I am trying to setup Persitent binding for tape devoces (physical and virtual). The device addresses keep changing., and they do not match the rules. Also, is there a format to the name and lexology of the rules? Can you have rules that have been renamed?

There's a good guide to udev rules here:
with plenty of examples.

I've read that document. The device mappings still change from boot to boot. The mappings do not match what's in the rules files.
