SID-02269: Restricting view access on a single page

I have a page that I want only users in the group OurWorkingGroup
to be able to read. Following the page http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/TWiki/TWikiAccessControl
, I add the following to the page:
This does nothing; everyone (including non-logged-in users) is still able to read the page. The bullet point is recognized as a bullet point. The ampersands aren't really there, I just had to add them to get this question posted.
How do I deny read access for a page to everyone but a specific group?

Discussion and Answer
Exactly as you tried to. I fail to confirm such an observation in my TWiki installations, as well as on twiki.org. Trying to access Sandbox.AccessControlExample
will fail for all members who are not part of DevelopBranchGroup
, and it consists of nothing but a setting for ALLOWTOPICVIEW.
Note, however, that all members of the administrators' group
will be able to read all topics, regardless of access control settings.

Well, I'm an idiot. I used the wrong Group name. Thanks for your help, though, Harald!

You're welcome... I didn't provide much insight anyway. I'll flag this question as "Answered".
