Goddang Trevor!

Could you be less clear? It's so illuminating that I have to put sunglasses on!

IF I understand what you're trying to say, my advice would be to try to abstract all you can. <categories> enclosing many <category> elements seems fine with me. However, I don't think it's a great idea to allow <categories> elements and <category> elements to be siblings. IMHO this is an abstraction error. But, you can do all you want, as long as it fits your needs ;o)

Good luck!

If you don't know what your program is supposed to do, don't try to write it.
