Help with importing categories

  • Hi,
    I have several static pages going back 13 years that we are converting to WP. We want to create a hierarchal category structure that has some sub-categories of the same name. For example, articles in category coffee will exist in a parent category July. July is a subcategory of 2012 and other years. This will be repeated in all 12 years of content like so:


    … etc.
    Same is obviously true for other months and even other sub-categories like coffee (example: sugar, wheat, etc). So we will have a lot of category structures like this:


    … etc.

    I don’t understand the Categories, Tags, Taxonomies section documented here: http://stephanieleary.com/downloads/html-import/user-guide.html#getting-help
    How do I format my incoming static HTML to pick up category hierarchy? In the HTML Import Plugin settings, there is this statement:

    To import tags from a region in each file, use a custom field with the name post_tag.

    Does that mean I do something like this?
    <div name="post_tag">2005>May>Wheat</div>

    Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for making this plugin available, by the way. It’s awesome.
