I would not recommend doing the following in an iterative list (like the 
results.html page, for instance), but if this is just a one-off thing, like 
on flypage.html, you can do:

[tmp field_contents][item-field category][/tmp]

[if scratch field_contents eq schwinn]
[elsif scratch field_contents eq mongoose]
[elsif scratch field_contents eq something_else]
  some other value: [scratch field_contents]
