WordPress does not permit a blank prefix for categories (they insert category/ before the name). For example, instead of http://foliovision.com/category/work, the address of the "work" category can be http://foliovision.com/work. With the Top Level Categories plugin, you can remove the prefix from the URL to your category page. This feature, however, may not work properly for child categories.
