FAQs 123 (Directory) and 95 (userpics and keywords)

FAQ 123 (What is the Directory?) reads:
Currently the Directory is available only to Paid Accounts, Permanent Accounts, and Early Adopters. See http://www.livejournal.com/paidaccounts/ for more information on Paid Accounts.

Two suggestions:

Early Adopters -> Early Adopter Accounts or "Paid Accounts..." -> "users with Paid or Permanent accounts and Early Adopters" (parallel structure)
/paidaccounts/ -> http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=131

FAQ 95 (How do I post using a different user picture? What are keywords?) includes a description of keywords, but doesn't mention the quirky behavior of commas and quotation marks. ruakh brought this up in this post and it was then discussed and clarified, but didn't get changed. I just wanted to bring attention back to it because it's a fairly weird functionality thing that isn't explained by the FAQ at all at present.

(zilla: bug 379 and bug 568)

Suggested changes:

Suggested changes:

Make sure to log</strike> <b>While logged</b> in<b>,</b> <strike>and</strike> visit<strike>:</strike> http://www.livejournal.com/editpics.bml . <strike>From there, you can enter any set of words you'd like, such as "happy, laughing, smiles" or "friends at mall, October 2002."</strike> <b>In the box next to each picture, enter a keyword that you associate with the picture. Keywords may be one or more words long [or "may contain spaces"], but should not contain commas. Commas are used to separate keywords if you would like to have more than one keyword for a picture. For example, you may enter "happy" or "friends at mall" if you want only one keyword, or "laughing, smiles" if you want two keywords.</b>

NOTE: Including quotation marks in your picture keywords is not recommended, because it will cause problems if you use the web client (http://www.livejournal.com/update.bml?mode=full) to update your journal.</blockquote>
