Another  WordPress-guts question..

"wp_term_taxonomy" tables *programmatically*.

to be with as termID = 100 )
and then I add 2 more terms into the same table ( wp_terms ) and these
terms are called "women" and "youth".  And as a result, I get termIDs 101
and 102, respectively.

then I goto the "wp_term_taxonomy" table, and add 2 records into it so that
I end up assigning the terms "youth" and "women" with the intent of they
are terms under the taxonomy called "audience".

My understanding is that the above entry means that there is a term with
the id "100" ( which maps to the label "audience" ) and its associated with
the "audience" taxonomy. I hope this understanding is correct.

To add the two records that would associate the "women" and "youth" terms
under the taxonomy "audience", I do this;
