	/// <remarks>
	/// To avoid namespace collisions between the names of the
	/// controls (which are then defacto the names
	/// of the control parameter values sent back on postback) and the names
	/// of the fields/properties we're using to store the values, some of the
	/// member names have been hacked a bit. This is more to do with my
	/// rather contrived demonstration than anything else.</remarks>
