FAQ156 (comment times) re-write?

FAQ156 (Why are my comments showing an incorrect time) reads a lot rougher, now, and it actually made me have to re-read it; I think some (or even a good portion of) users may be a bit confused by the wording.

Suggestions for improving:
-Define "Site Scheme Page," somewhere in the FAQs, and link appropriately
-Drop "GMT" altogether, as UTC is supposedly considered standard, now-a-days... Calling it two things tends to lead to confusion. If not dropping GMT, then re-wording the GMT/UTC (possibally just defining the acronyms via parenthetical reference). (It is my understanding that some pages on LJ use "GMT" and some use "UTC." Standardizing these pages in the future would be a good thing, confusion-wise.)
-Linking to a page listing the differing time-zones and the +/-UTC, although this may make it even more confusing as you have to take into account Daylight Savings Time.
-Clean up grammaticals and some wording.

Perhaps none of the above, and maybe it's just me thinking that the FAQ reads roughly. Just thought I'd throw in my two cents.

I apologise in advance for the spamming that I'm about to do. :)

The customization FAQ rewrite thing that I mentioned here is finally getting close to done. As such, I'm posting the drafts for all the changes. These are very drafty drafts; in particular, the Further Reading sections don't have URLs, and there are some cases where I've put [FAQ 124] instead of linking to FAQ 124. Obviously, these will be changed in the final version, but I figured I'd get input first.

Comments, corrections, suggestions, etc, are welcome.

(FAQ to be moved from S2 to Customization)

TITLE: How do I change the appearance of my comment pages or other users' comment pages?

By default, comment pages display in the site scheme that is used for any system LiveJournal page. For Paid and Permanent accounts using the S2 style system, comment pages will display in the journal's style unless they choose otherwise; however, free accounts, as well as any account using the S1 style system, does not have access to customized comment pages.

Cust FAQ project - new FAQ

(FAQ to be in Customization)

TITLE: How do I change the title of my journal?

You can specify a title and subtitle for your journal at http://www.livejournal.com/editinfo.bml, under the "LiveJournal Options" section. The title and subtitle will display on your userinfo page. Also, the title, subtitle, and friends page title will be used on your journal, although different styles use these titles in different combinations and different places.
