There is no difference between the two. [[!SomeCategory]] is just a
convenient shortcut for [[Category/SomeCategory]].
Both are simply links pointing to a page in the category group, and
this page mayor may not exist.

There is no concept in PmWiki of a category label or tag. By using
a category link a page does not 'belong' to a category. It simply
allows listing of pages with such links on a Category page using the
pagelist link= parameter.
