Hi, thanks for this.

Yes, I'd like to do this as soon as possible.

I have to say that I didn't understand much about this, but it sounds
like it would require the page name being the trigger for the
auto-generated content, rather than the category that a page is tagged
with... Did I misunderstand?

Would it be impossible for the Category feature to be extended so as to
include auto-generated content? Or perhaps I am looking at this problem
from the wrong direction, and should think about some way for a macro to
be used which would include the relevant text on the page, and
automatically add the category... and maybe hope that such a macro could
be included on the page via a drop down menu.

Any thoughts?
