Yes, that's one idea, but then I would need a separate template for each 
page/category, and there are about 50 of them. I also want future 
peopple to be able to maintain site from within the admin pages, just 
using wordpress post/page entries.
Since most of pages are same format, i only have a few template pages at 
present, and if the admin adds a page and category, it automatically 
appears on the menus etc. in the right place (provided they set the parent!)

I am sure there are taxonomy functions to get the page associated with a 
category, then the posts, probably in a second loop = I previously 
rolled my own, but of course the taxomnomy changes have messed that up!
