That's okay, at least for me. At this point my main concern was making
sure I got pages with just a particular tag, and I was running into
the issue where "weekly" would pick-up "biweekly" entries or something
like "ING" would pick-up "shopping".

I guess you could address the issue of having something appear in both
of the pagelists above by doing something like this?

(:pagelist _todo _someday:)
(:pagelist -_todo _someday:)
(:pagelist _todo -_someday:)

As long as you had your formatting setup probably it would probably
look and be okay.

Well, I have a pretty good bit, but I'll just deal with it. I need to
change my forms for users of the recipe though to give some direction
when entering tags in the tag field. Something like "Proceed tags with
"_" underscore to allow for better filtering."

Thanks again,
