The Import address books has a poor description.
File -> Import, select mail

The only type listed is text. So thinking that the ldif I had just exported from
netscape on my windows PC would not work I went back to try and export in "text"
format.  Netscape does not have this option, so i was not sure what to do. I
decided to try text anyway and see if it worked.  BUT as soon as you click on
text the full description appears below, 
"import address book from a text file. LDIF and comma of tab separated files are
are supported"

Why are these not separate items? Obviusly the type is detected atutomaticall by
the same function but having them all labeled as "text" only serves to confuse.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.go to address book
2.try and import
3.text is displayed but the description is not

Actual Results:  no discription

Expected Results:  Either separate items in the import address book "wizard" or
the description of text displayed as text auto highlighted at the start, or text
(LDIF, csv,tab text) listed as the item

Mozilla build 0.9.7: Linux RH 7.1 - the problem occurs.
- Selected File|Import, selected Address Book radio button and the only option
selected is "Text" with no description.

Mozilla nightly build from 2001-01-04: Linux RH 7.1 - appears fixed.
- In the box it supplies a fuller description "text file (LDIF, .tav, .csv,
.txt)" and it is selected by default so the description below the box states:
"Import an Address brook from a text file, LDIF and comma or tab delimitted
formats are supported."
