iChat: How can I show a buddy's screen name instead of their name in my AddressBook?

I iChat w/a co-worker and would like for something other than her name to apper when she IMs me. Right now, iChat is pulling her name from my address book. I'd much rather have her AIM name or another nickname.



Is there a way to do this and keep her real name in the address book?

    Sorry, there isn't an option for this. Hopefully it will be for iChat 2 in Panther.

    Haven't done it but can't you put another entry in the address book with the nickname and the AIM handle and then just remove the handle from the first entry? (Don't know what happen with two duplicate AIM's. Maybe iChat gives you a choice of what to use. Let us know.
