<br><br>Vocabulary : Category list section<br><br>Term : Term, but described as equal to keywords and tags (because from the<br>us's perspective, they are).<br><font color="#888888"></font></blockquote><div><br>This will confuse matters more.
Here is how it was mapped from the old days, which was confusing and
too technical (not only computer science, but biology too!).<br>
<br>- Taxonomy -> Categories<br>
- Vocabulary -> Vocabulary (this one is the confusing part, perhaps that is the only thing that needs to be renamed. How about just Category item or Category ID?).<br>- Term -> Term<br><br></div></div>-- <br>Khalid M. Baheyeldin
