The Wikidelphia Category System
Note: Wikidelphia is mostly an index to websites. A "Target" is the thing, process, website, article, (or whatever) to which the Wikidelphia page points. Access to the Target is usually found in the form of a hypertext link at the top of the page, under the page name.
