On English Wikipedia history page

(latest|earliest) can easily be replaced with (newest|oldest) to be consistent with  (newer 200|older 200).

As a note, this can be changed on a per wiki basis by editing [[mediawiki:histfirst]] and [[mediawiki:histlast]].

Personally I'm unsure if the change is a good idea, but don't have any strong opinions.
Comment 2 Mark Schierbecker 2011-06-17 06:35:36 UTC
Oldest/newest is how Gmail does it. Yahoo just has arrows.
