Description

You can see your active theme at the top of the screen. Below are the other themes you have installed that are not currently in use. You can see what your site would look like with one of these themes by clicking the Customize link (see "Previewing and Customizing", below). To change themes, click the Activate link.

(Also, "below" is also weird, as the "Previewing and Customizing" tab is to the left. Unfortunately, we cannot link directly to a panel via a hashed link.)

Click on the "Customize" link under any theme to preview that theme and change theme options in a separate, full-screen view. Any installed theme can be previewed and customized in this way.

In the left-hand pane of the Theme Customizer you can edit the theme settings. The settings will differ, depending on what theme features the theme being previewed supports. To accept the new settings and activate the theme all in one step, click the "Save & Activate" button at the top of the left-hand pane.

It probably should not be called "left-hand pane of the Theme Customizer" — "the left-hand pane" probably enough.

(see the "Previewing and Customizing" help tab)? Is there another phrase already in use for those tabs?
