Suggestions for minor FAQ corrections

FAQ 75: How do I use an lj-cut? What are the other LiveJournal-specific tags?

"will take you the 64th FAQ" -> "will take you to the 64th FAQ"

FAQ 72: How do I alter the appearance of my text? How do I make text bold, italic or centered?

PREVIEW section (including BE CAREFUL warning) deals with comments only. That's obsolete since preview is available for creating/editing entries. Additionally, preview is not available with Quick Reply (unless you press More Options button).

FAQ 106: My account has been suspended! How can I get it back?

"breakins" -> "break-ins"

In old times, the third paragraph suggested users to send email to abuse@livejournal.com. Nowadays, the paragraph still bears the marks of the old times. I suggest the following wording to smooth those "wrinkles". The things I changed are underlined.
If you have good reasons for unsuspension of your journal, please go to http://www.livejournal.com/abuse/report.bml. Type in the email address that has been validated for your journal and select the option "My journal was suspended / I received a communication from the Abuse Team". You will be asked for your username after you press Begin button. For security purposes, the Abuse team can communicate regarding a journal only with the owner of the email address that has been validated for that journal. In some cases, particularly those involving a dispute about who the legitimate owner of a journal is, we may require you to write from the address that was first validated on your LiveJournal account.
As you can see, I suggested one more thing. The Report Abuse page looks confusing for suspended users. I can say I'm a LiveJournal user but then my password will not be accepted. I can provide email address but then I should say I'm not a user. What should I do? So, I suggest FAQ to explain this point. Actually, it's only my guess that user should provide email address. May be he/she shouldn't bother about filling in those fields because he/she will be asked for username after pressing Begin button?
