A new site i'm making is going to use extensive use of the categories, so here's what i'm trying to accomplish:

Main Category Name (Link)

List of Sub Categories (All Links)

When i'm on a sub-category page I want it to look like the Main Category page just with the sub-categories highlited.

Is that possible?

That's damn simple, see here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_categories . The sample downhere should work:

$kids = get_categories(array('child_of'=>get_query_var('cat')));
