Very nice idea! I liked the fact that the true European geographical borders were used, but there are a few exceptions:

- I believe the whole of Cyprus is already in the Asian plate/continent, so it shouldn't be here

-Part of Kazakhstan is in Europe. Perhaps it would be possible to find out what is the highest point of Kazakhstan in the European continent

-Mount Scenery (Netherlands) is in North America, so I guess it shouldnt appear here

-The same for Gunnbjorn (Denmark) which is in North America

-Also the same for Teide (Spain) that is in Africa

They're all European countries and, as I mention in the description, the highest points in "mainland" Europe are in brackets next to their territories' highest points. As for which countries are included, I refer you to the Wikipedia article, which I will add to the description.
