Specific post sections per category (2 posts)

    I'm not sure how to explain myself, but here goes:
    Because WordPress 1.0 now has the ability for each entry to be filed until multiple categories, it would be interesting if each time someone clicked on the link pertaining to a specific category, it would only show the part of all posts that actually had to do with that category. For example,
    /*example post*/
    January 17, 2004 - What I did today - posted at 2:29 pm
    <!--cat_books-->
    Today I read Moby Dick...
    <!--end_cat-->
    <!--cat_movies-->
    Today I watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding...
    <!--end_cat-->
    /*end example post*/
    After clicking on the link for a specific category, say, for the category Books, all that would show up would be:
    /*example category page*/
    January 17, 2004 - What I did today - posted at 2:29 pm
    Today I read Moby Dick...
    (read complete entry)
    /*end*/
    This isn't really necessary but it would allow each category to be very specific and make better use of the multiple-category-per-entry function. Maybe this is already available? Thanks.

    If you are interested in this sort of functionality you should split your content into seperate posts. Multiple categories is for the same content that may refer to two or more things, for example an entry on Eldred vs. Ashcroft could be in the categories "copyright", "technology", and "supr"eme court" equally.
