Although I still wonder if we shouldn't make them appear/editable in
the properties screen. That's probably quite some work.

That's a good point, the editor screen doesn't show the preview. But
the preview uses the public templates, and we can only show the
categories if they're included in the public template too.

Aha, what we can do is include an info box, like we have for images,
that lists the categories. Layout's going to be a bit tricky, but it's

If I recall, news items do not do the "new silva thing" where the document is
rendered on the edit tab of published items.  If this was the case, the
subjects/ta's could be included in the metadata column of the news item.  You
know, the column that lists the publication/display date/time and location.

Once a news item is published, the only way to find out what it's categories
(subjects and target audiences) are is to make a new version and check the
properties toolbox. Really the categories are metadata. They should at least be
displayed in the properties screen. Probably they should be editable there too.
