Inaccurate Help text on the Tools screen

Description

Help text says:

The Categories and Tags Converter link on this screen will take you to the Import screen, where that Converter is one of the plugins you can install. Once that plugin is installed, return to this screen and the link will take you to a screen where you can choose to convert tags into categories or vice versa.

The highlighted part is inaccurate. The link always leads to the Import screen first, whether the plugin is installed or not:
http://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/3.3/wp-admin/tools.php#L61

Introduced in [19509] as a rewrite of previous text ([16980]), which wasn't accurate too. Should probably have been "the link on that page" (Import screen) rather than "the link on this page".

Patch attached is first pass at clarifying the language. Have to say, there's a lot of 'screen' use in there.

The Categories and Tags Converter link on this screen will take you to the Import screen, where that Converter is one of the plugins you can install. Once that plugin is installed, return to this screen and the link will take you to a screen where you can choose to convert tags into categories or vice versa.

The Categories and Tags Converter link on this screen will take you to the Import screen, where that Converter is one of the plugins you can install. Once that plugin is installed and activated, return to this screen and the link will again take you to the Import screen. From the Import screen, the Converter link will take you to a screen where you can choose to convert tags into categories or vice versa.

Also the second instance of the word hierarchy is misspelled in the sentence "Tags do not have hierachy" on line 22.

Original:
Categories have hierarchy, meaning that you can nest sub-categories. Tags do not have hierachy and cannot be nested. Sometimes people start out using one on their posts, then later realize that the other would work better for their content.

The Categories and Tags Converter link on this screen will take you to the Import screen, where that Converter is one of the plugins you can install. Once that plugin is installed, return to this screen and the link will take you to a screen where you can choose to convert tags into categories or vice versa.

Modified:
Categories have hierarchy, meaning that you can nest sub-categories. Tags do not have hierarchy and cannot be nested. Sometimes people start out using one on their posts, then later realize that the other would work better for their content.

The Categories and Tags Converter link below will take you to the Import screen, where the Converter is one of the plugins you can install. Once installed and activated, return to this screen and the link will take you to the Import screen where you can choose to convert tags into categories or vice versa.
