The Palm OS 3.x and 4.x databases all support only up to 15 (+Unfiled)
categories by design.

Does the Palm Tungsten W (with Palm OS 5, I suppose) support more than 15
categories (+ "Unfiled")?

As far as I learnt in this list the Palm OS 5 standard applications maintain a
second "compatibility database" in the "old" (OS 3 and 4) format which is
synced by jpilot. How does your Tungsten map its numerous categories to the
limited compatibility database?

This will lead to a more general question how an application should behave
which claims to be comaptible with Palm OS 3.x and 4.x data.
