This has been a source of many posts to the list. My solution to this has been an additional field. So if we want to display
Phone Jacks Standard as a single phrase I would list that in the category field and in catsf (category search field) put
maybe something like PHJS and then search on catsf for PHFS and display on page the corresponding category entry. The %20 is
supposed to work but I have had more than my fair share of problems with it. I have had no problems using my method.
