      Description

      This is a trivial suggested improvement which I believe would make course organization a little clearer. Currently, when one builds a heirarchy of course categories and sub-categories, if a category has no courses directly listed then it will show on the list of courses a "(0)" next to the name. This way, it appears as though the highest-level categories are showing that they contain nothing. I think it would be better if a categories which contain no courses directly but rather sub-categories with courses, no number should be displayed. I have attached a picture showing the current view and this proposed change. An alternative is to have this number indicate the total number of courses contained within the category and sub-categories.
