Misc. notes

If a Season/Organisation/Competition combination already exists on the web, when you again place the output into the sub-web (see above) the previous contents will be deleted with the new contents replacing the old ones. However, you will lose any modifications you have made on the web. In other words, don't do it if you have started to enter results!!!!!!!!
