+     <label>"These are the top-level categories:
+<i>Desktop System Setup Utility Filesystem Graphic Document Business Personal Network Internet Multimedia Fun Help BuildingBlock</i>
+You will also find these in the top-level menu (see bottom-left of screen). You may also optionally select a sub-category, but if none seem to apply, just choose the top-level only -- for example, <b>Fun</b> has sub-categories <b>adventure</b>, <b>arcade</b>, <b>boardgame</b>, <b>cardgame</b>, <b>puzzle</b> and <b>shooter</b>, but if none of those seem to apply, just choose <b>Fun</b>.
+<b>BuildingBlock</b> packages are those that are system-level utilities, data and libraries, that you would not normally choose to install via the Puppy Package Manager. Thus, they are by default filtered out by the PPM. For example, <i>libsdl</i> is a library, however some applications will have it as a dependency so if you choose to install one of those, then libsdl will also get installed -- <i>libsdl</i> is not something that you would want to install on its own, thus it qualifies as a <b>BuildingBlock</b>.
+<b>Technical notes:</b>
+Note that the Puppy Package Manager will recognize category and subcategory, and filters packages based on category, to display a smaller selection to choose from. Packages are listed in the PPM with icons alongside, that are obtained from /usr/local/lib/X11/mini-icons -- there is a generic icon for every category and sub-category.
+A category, with optional subcategory, does not mean that the application has a menu entry. A menu entry will only exist if an appropriate .desktop file exists in /usr/share/applications -- this is provided in the package. The .desktop file specifies whereabouts in the menu the entry is located, and ideally we would expect it to correspond to the category;subcategory field described above, however in theory the .desktop file can place it anywhere else."</label>
