Subject Re: Facet Fields - ID vs. Display Value
Date Mon, 09 Aug 2010 23:30:56 GMT
I think depends on what you need:
1) Simple,unique category - use display facet
2) Categories may be duplicate from display perspective (eg authors) :
store display#id in facet field but show only display
3) Internationalization requirements - store I'd but have ui pull and
display the translated labels
