Subject [PATCH] windows.xml
Date Mon, 23 Sep 2002 17:56:57 GMT
Hello,

Could someone take a look at this patch and possibly commit it(2.0 docs)?

The changes are small, mostly almost pedantic, but clarifying. For
example, where there now reads NT/2000, there would be NT/2000/XP, some
typos, and a small change to the subheadings.

BTW, the current visual scheme in the 2.0 docs is excellent!

Thanks!

Best regards,
Iikka Meriläinen
