Does it actually create the page files in wiki.d?

Normally in a fresh installation the category link has a specific HTML 
snippet, and the link looks like links to existing pages, even if the 
category page doesn't exist (e.g. not a link to Category?action=edit).

Also, when you follow a link to a category page that doesn't exist or 
open its URL, PmWiki doesn't show the "Site.PageNotFound" page, but 
shows the empty page with the HTTP response code 200 (OK).

This is by design. By default the Category.GroupFooter contains a 
pagelist with backlinks, so even a non-existing category page will 
function properly.
