my goal is to allow them to edit a set of layers (point, line, polygon, annotation) which then gets stamped with their AD name and filtered when it is displayed so only they can see it. I probably will have attributes that define the style - so a field called "Colour" and a pick list of a dozen or so. For the my users that'll be enough, it isn't a massively used feature, but one they will moan about if I replace the old ArcIMS tool with a new one.
