Thanks for the patch!
Some minor notes I addressed before committing:
- Changed Analogously to Similarly - keep it simple for people whose first language is not english.
- section—a uses a non-ascii character which we prefer to avoid. Changed to section (a prism).
@Lawrence D'Oliveiro (ldo), if its really needed, ok - but it makes editing more of a hassle, since you can't so easily type them in.
One example its used:
@Lawrence D'Oliveiro (ldo), having to copy-paste just to type in a character is a hassle, and setting up compose keys is fine but extra steps... then having to remember unicode values... its platform specific too.
So, if there is some text where its really needed (where best alternative would be do use an image),
as with (✓ & ✗), then it seems reasonable, otherwise we can avoid and have more easily editable text.
