It looks good, thanks for the correction! If you're worried about
breaking things, you can always use the Preview button to check if your
changes work correctly, or ask on this mailing list for some help.

The wiki is open for everyone to edit, so it's fine to just jump in! If
you make a few edits to pages which you're interested in and then ask
for a review of your work on the mailing list, we'll check over your
work and point out any problems. There's no danger of breaking things,
since we can just load an old revision of the page if something goes
wrong. I doubt that will happen, though...

Let us know if you have any questions whatsoever and we'll be happy to

Good luck,


Phil Bull
