Create a Custom NewForm/EditForm for a SharePoint List

After bullishly breaking an existing SharePoint List by taking a copy of the NewForm.aspx and making custom changes to it, I tried to resurrect the pages by following several sets of instructions on the web:

Unfortunately I think I had already gone to far down the line trying to ressurect it and it was beyond my skills and patience to repair it. So I exported the data from the existing list and imported it into a newly created list.

I then found a Create a Custom NewForm.aspx for a SharePoint List tutorial here which worked a treat to implement my custom changes. Looks like it all turned out ok in the end but was another fun SharePoint lesson learned the hard way.
