Toolkit has changed to "Text Encoding" in toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/global/charsetMenu.dtd which breaks suite/common/charsetOverlay.xul and thus at least needs to be changed here. Either we fork charsetMenu.dtd and its two entities to retain the old labels, or have to modify the workding throughout preference panes and Help content.
Depends on: 1138964
Since bug 1138964 covers the bustage in suite/ as well already (thanks to Paenglab!), I'm retargeting this bug to make the respective changes in the Help content.

Neil, comm-central changeset ecc95ada09d1 didn't address generalEncoding and formEncoding in suite/locales/en-US/chrome/browser/pageInfo.dtd, thus I'll change those as drive-by fix here (unless there is a reason not to change those labels).
Never mind, I've filed bug 1140204 for that.

Note that I'm also changing the link anchors, thus had to modify mailPrefsOverlay.xul respectively.

Sorry, only just spotted this but it should either be "the way" or "how" but not both.

>+  are converted to data to be used by your computer. All web documents and

Removed the "how" and rewrapped the paragraph.

Hmm, the follow-up patch checked in long ago, thus I'm not sure why this bug is still open.
Closing as it's definitely fixed on all versions.
