manual editing

I have a small ACeDB database that I am playing around
with: Most of the data is inputted automatically from
database searching routines but there is a fair amount of
"manual" editing required - things which have to be removed/
renamed/altered and comments added (as objects themselves
rather than comments to the tags).

I was wondering what the best way of doing this was - At
the moment I am making little .ace files with -D 's in
to remove the data, but it would be good to have some more
automated systems (running through - WWW? Tcl?) which one could
imagine either writting the .ace files themselves (probably using
tace to get at the ACeDB data to display to the user ) and then
the user loading those .ace files into tace/xace or perhaps
running the "input" side of it from the WWW CGI bin - but then,
that requires giving hte WWW "user" permissions on the ACeDB database
which I don't particularly like.

How do other people handle this? DO you have any advice for this
sort of manual editing...

thanks alot
