I have an SQL 2005 Database, and I'm trying to figure out the best design for it;  The database contains items, categories, and sub-categories.

An item can be contained within a  category, with or without being contained in a sub-category; and and item can consist of multiple categories and/or sub-categories.

What is the best way to create the tables for this?
Thanks for your time.
