wordpress.org/download meaning of "F5" not clear

nickshanks: on wordpress.org/download it says "Press F5 to reload and get a new styling"
MarkJaquith: nickshanks: browsers cache CSS
nickshanks: MarkJaquith: but WordPress aren't going to know what F5 does
MarkJaquith: nickshanks: ah, good point.  Guess it assumes that people who don't know how to refresh their browser are IE users ;-)
nickshanks: MarkJaquith: ahh. don't know about IE things, i haven't got it
nickshanks: MarkJaquith: perhaps better put "Clear your browser cache (F5 for Windows IE users)"

What's the issue? F5 is the refresh button for Firefox users too. It's more or less universal among browsers (at least on Windows).

nickshanks, you have been kicking butt in reporting some great bugs. Including an IRC discussion is not an effective way to write a problem report.
