That seems like a worthy comment to add to the dictionary entries for the
backgroundNames property and the remove command. Unfortunately, the "Upload
web note" button appears not to work, even though a dialog box reports
"Upload complete." At least, I can't see the note I uploaded for the
backgroundNames property. Can anyone else see newly uploaded web notes?
