#1 category question count

The count next to the Category e.g. e-Mail
Solutions(0)can be very misleading if there are
sub-categories and no questions at the root level of
the main category, but questions in the sub-category.

As given in the above example if e-Mail Solutions has
two sub-categories e.g. Outlook 2005 (10) and Notes (5)
and no questions under e-Mail Solution category then at
the client level users see "e-Mail Solution (0)" even
if there are questions within either or both
sub-categories. This would suggest that the main
category is empty and users may not click on the link.

While I can add questions to the main category to
circumvent this issue can the code be rewritten to take
into account questions in sub-categories?

    I'm having a bad day... the problem does exist. I was
    looking within the main category. When I exited to the root
    the count for the main category is 0 tho' there are two sub
    folders and question in each.

    What would be good, if it is possible, would be to show a
    count of sub-categories and questions e.g. if i have a
    category called Windows XP on the client interface it would
    show....
    Windows XP (10,100)

    where 10, the first number is the number of sub categories
    and 100 the number of questions.
