Huh? Me!??! OK. I was planning on it :)

I'll try to create templates for the formatting so that we can repeat it on
other category pages where we think it's appropriate.

Do you have any idea why empty subcategories show up in the page? I checked
a few of the pages and found subcategory pages that have been customized
but contain no pages in them. That seems broken to me. My guess is that
there were pages in that category, someone customized the category page,
the pages were deleted or moved to another category. Now we're left with
these dangling category pages. They probably need cleaning up as well :(
