> This hides to the localizer many technical tedious details.

hides from, not hides to (and "from the localizer" really belongs at the end of
the sentence)

>- They have to follow each system customary.</p></li>
>+ They have to follow each system's customary.</p></li>

custom, not customary, although convention is probably better

and tedious should be before technical

Applied your comments.	Hope this is a correct patch syntax, as I directly
edited the patch file, but it should work.

You're missing the space after a few + and - near the top of the patch

r=fantasai with those changes.

Once again, someone else has to check this in.	It is still far from prefect,
btw.

There are still a lot of +/- without a following space, which makes me think
the patch won't apply cleanly. But as for the changes themselves, r=fantasai.

commited. I applied the patch by hand so there's no problem fantasai mentioned.

Hendrik Maryns: edit local file(mlp_what2.html in this case) itself and do diff
instead of editing old diff.
In your way, let people other than yourself to find the new attachment is
actually new or not becomes hard work.

There wouldn't have been a problem.  It was correct.
