I am not sure what you are trying to do precisely.
Foxedit itself does only provide the markup
for edit links and buttons, which will load a Fox edit
form. Fox will do all the form processing when you save,
not foxedit. Save Atributes is called in th eprocess of
saving a page as well.

If you add a [[!Keyword]] markup to a page it creates a
link to a page Category.Keyword. This page does not need to actually
exists (and does not exists with standard PmWiki setup).
And it will not be updated when a [[!Keyword]] link is created on any
page, but following the link you may see a list of pages
which link to it. this is usualy achieved with  a (:pagelist ..:)
markup on page Category.GroupFooter (saving you the hassle of adding
a pagelist markup on every category page).

Hope these explanations will make it somewhat clearer what is going on!
