[Bug 1637126] Re: Edit wireless connection needs revision


Some notes on terminology: At some point "Wireless" must have been
changed to "Wi-Fi" in the GUI but the desktop help wasn't changed. I
briefly checked terminology outside Ubuntu. For example, Wikipedia uses
"Wi-Fi" not "WiFi" or "wifi" or "wi-fi". I haven't done a global replace
in the help of "wireless" to "Wi-Fi" since terms such as "wireless card"
or "wireless network" seem to be widely used outside Ubuntu. I think any
occurrences of "wi-fi" etc in the help should be changed to "Wi-Fi".
Let's be consistent.

  Edit wireless connection needs revision

Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  This page (link below) needs to be revised so that it uses the current
  names of the tabs and controls. For example (in 16.04) the tabs are
  General, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Security, IPv4 Settings, and IPv6 Settings. The
  page doesn't use the current name for the first three tabs but does
  use the current name for the last two tabs.

  If a control is documented the current name of the control should (of
  course) be used.
