Glossary Entry 1

Categories (v. tags)
When creating or editing an entry, authors can assign one or more existing categories to an entry. One category can be assigned as the primary category which will be listed along with the entry in the entry listings. In addition, multiple secondary categories can be assigned to cast a wider net and allow entries to span classification. In creating categories, it’s best to make them as general and broad as possible and have very few. In this way, they provide a perfect counterbalance to the very specific and granual entry tags (described later). If you must make granular categories, it’s best to do so using a hierarchical subcategory structure.

I got most of these terms from the Six Apart Documentation and a few from Wikipedia.
