Text encoding FAQ (133) - unclear

Following this support request, it's come to my attention that the text encoding FAQ is actually not that helpful.

The first part refers to setting a "default text encoding". The actual drop down box at /editinfo.bml is named "Auto-translate older entries from:", under the Encoding Options heading.

Either the wording on editinfo.bml could be changed to something like "Auto-translate older entries from: (default text encoding)", or the FAQ wording could be changed to something like:

To do this, first visit your Personal Info settings at http://www.livejournal.com/editinfo.bml . Scroll down to the bottom and choose to auto translate your old entries from the appropriate encoding. [this is explained further in the following paragraph]
