Description Dave Smif 2006-06-27 10:04:22 UTC
The inital configuration page, config/index.php, displays the following:

Preferably a short word without punctuation, i.e. "Wikipedia".

This should read:

Preferably a short word without punctuation, e.g. "Wikipedia".

i.e. is short for "id est" = "that is". It is used to give a specific case, in
order to clarify a point.

e.g. is short for "exempli gratia", and should be used when giving examples.
