Asynch & Ajax Javascript Categories
The category hacks keep comin', and here's another great Javascript hack for categories that was added direct to the Blogger Hacks Wiki by Eslam, the hack author. This category method, which loads asynchronously in the sidebar of your blog, produces an ajax menu. Post titles load underneath individual tags when you click the tags. This method also allows multiple category labels per post. Most excellent.

Multiple template edits are required, but the instructions are clear. My one question involves the use of atom to provide the category tags. The script queries your feed to find labels, & since this uses atom, can it still see older posts after they fall out of your feed, or does it only categorise the new stuff on your site?
