Importing many articles

I am working on a glossary with hundreds of entries.

Each is in a standard format: title, text, category(ies), in a dbase file with a memo field, which can be exported to csv.

Rather than put them all into a few articles with many topics per page, it would be much better for each one to be a CityDesk article, with the categories as keywords.

What is the best approach?

- Import them one by one, manually? - Tedious
- Use a macro program? - Suggestions please
- Wait for an update to CityDesk? - When

... or is there a way of feeding them into the CityDesk database behind the scenes?

You can open up the CTY file using Access 2000.  Its just a database.
