While not terribly important, I think this is a good idea.

I don't think that the default combobox control allows multiple selections. So it would have to be some kind of custom control.

I don't know... I think I have to disagree, because I really like being able to apply multiple categories to a single event (e.g., Medical + Calls for a telephone consultation with a doctor). Maybe there could be an option for you to choose how you want the event categories menu to be displayed, or something.

apply multiple categories to a single event (e.g., Medical + Calls

Using multiple categories works like a charm for me... (Ctrl or type)

Pulldown would have the disadvantage of not being able to type new, one-off categories (and the advantage of not being able to misspell, I guess).

Methinks menus work pretty well as is...

Actually Windows listboxes (wich includes the listbox in the dropdownbox) has the ability to multi or single select !
But how about a Ctrl+Enter shortcut, when tabbed into the Category edit field and move the button to the right of the field, so that the Edit field naturally is selected first when tabbing !
