Hi Petko,

Wow! That's awesome. Okay, a few questions now.

The tags don't have to be listed in a certain order when creating them?

Is there an easy way to add the _ to my existing tags?

And last but not least, where were you when I was setting my system up? :)

This is really nice because it appears that it will address the issue
of having a pagelist based on multiple criteria for the same PTV
