Readme.html cleanups, rework
|Reported by:||niallkennedy||Owned by:|
I reworked readme.html and related CSS in an attempt to better explain WordPress to first-time users.
- Break up "recommendations" section into "requirements" and "recommendations" sections. Matches wording in WP.org requirements page.
- Link to PHP and MySQL homepages (and cron on Wikipedia), just in case it's not obvious to someone.
- Add mod_rewrite as a recommendation.
- Note that WordPress 1.5 template changes only are likely to apply if you have a WordPress install from before Feb 2005.
- Link WordPress logo on top of page to WordPress.org. Add image dimensions to avoid page redraw.
- Change links and text for XML-RPC tools to reflect their current names and homepages. This paragraph seems geared towards the blogging world of 2005; there have been a few name and ownership changes since.
- Add a link to WordPress import tools list in wp-admin.
- New css for dt and dd elements to match li and p font size and spacing.
- Add title attributes to some links to better describe destination content (user-facing in tooltip).
- Convert named HTML entities to UTF code point equivalents to match document style, doctype syntax, and lookup speed.
- Add nofollow link relationship to install and upgrade links to prevent discourage search crawlers hitting those links.
- Add abbreviations (abbr) where appropriate to expand content meaning. e.g. <abbr title="WordPress">WP</abbr>
- Remove suggestion to bookmark and constantly check wp dev blog. Encourage users to check their admin dashboard module instead.
- Explicitly specify GPLv2 instead of just GPL.
