The current documentation comment regarding FINALPREFERENCES in TWiki.TWikiPreferences, Main.TWikiPreferences, and WebPreferences states "Web preferences that are not allowed to be overridden by user or topic preferences:"

This should be modified to read: "Web preferences that are not allowed to be overridden by sub-web, user, or topic preferences:"

Many new users get stuck trying to set preferences like DENYWEBVIEW in a sub-web because they don't realize they need to remove this variable from FINALPREFERENCES in the parent web. Hopefully this small change in the documentation will reduce the occurrence of this little "gotcha."

Anyone see any complications in my making this change? If no one objects in new week or so, I'll commit the change.
