How about getting rid of the quote marks for describing words/phrases/actions that are in the interface? Customize instead of "Customize"

We are still doing this without a Style Guide for the help tabs, but this would make it consistent with how we've done the other tabs.

Could you change your patch to include relative paths from the WordPress root dir, please?

Hi Doug, thanks for the feedback. I deliberately quote UI items for consistency. If the UI item is labelled "Customize", I can see not quoting it, as the capital letter and the single word help to disambiguate it. However, a number of these UI items are links in mixed or sentence case and could seriously confuse a sentence in which they are found. Hence, the quotes. I think it is a best practice to which the help tabs should eventually all adhere.
