I did a structure review for test sample 7 (sc1.1.1_l1_002, which 
uses the old naming convention). This seemed to work well.
However, when adding comments in the last field, it would be nice to 
have an easier way to refer to the checks by means of a name or 
number (instead of quoting the whole question/criterion).
When reopening the structure review, I saw that ther is no link back 
to the overview (there's only "submit" and "delete" at the bottom). 
Of course, it is possible to use the Back button, but I always feel a 
bit uneasy about this on pages with forms.

Apparently only double quotation marks, not single quotation marks.
I hope the script will also be equipped to ward off SQL injection attempts.

I think I'll need more time to test more thoroughly. Ideally, we 
should simulate the whole process for a few test samples.

Best regards,
