Even More on Securing Entities in ASP.NET Dynamic Data

I should mention (as I failed to do so in my last post) that some of the information (in particular the use of the location element) came from David Ebbo and his answers to questions in the forums. If you want to take things even further and implement permissions at the table and field level…
