Category Pages in Inktomi

Would an 'all' category count as multiple content?

Let's say I've got a site selling widgets, and I've got category pages for small widgets, medium widgets, and large widgets.

Would Inktomi count a page with all widgets as multiple content, or would it be perfectly fine?

It would be fine if it were enough different than the other ones.

Let's say I've got a category page for all widgets (displays all types of widgets), and I've also got subcategory pages for small widgets, medium widgets, and big widgets.

If a product shows up under the small widgets subcategory, can it also show up under the 'all widgets' category?

Panic
if you are creating a site with the user in mind I dont think you will have problems. If you are trying to see how far you can push it in creating multiple similar pages with the goal of flooding result sets then you will have a problem. It doesnt sound like what you are doing is wrong but I do not know the details and from experience I have always said if the creator of content thinks it might be spam it probably is. This is generally because the webmaster has a feeling that he/she would not create the site in that way if search engines didnt exist.
