news.mozilla.org now hosts user support newsgroups. The mozilla.org support page needs to be updated to point people to the new newsgroups.

The mailing lists will eventually need to be added, and the bi-directional gateway explained; but for now, lets just fix what's wrong with the current page.

preface and newsgroup list updated

I've used the previous preface about the Netscape secure server, as a template, and added the same blurb about Giganews that is on the developer forums page <http://www.mozilla.org/community/developer-forums.html>.
I've also added the Camino newsgroup, to coincide with the web-forum list.

We need to update these links and this change makes sense.

FWIW, I don't have a CVS account.

Yeah, I'm about to commit it. I'm having some issues with my SSH key. ;)
FYI, Giganews has asked us to use a separate link on each word of Giganews Newsgroups.  Not quite sure what they gain by it (doesn't seem to be pagerank ;) but it doesn't hurt anything.  See the top of the developer forums page for an example (linked from comment 1).
Checking in mozilla-org/html/support/index.html;
/cvsroot/mozilla-org/html/support/index.html,v  <--  index.html
new revision: 1.55; previous revision: 1.54

I included the change from comment #5 along with some changes in whitespacing and case.

Will verify after it reaches www-stage.
