Troubleshooting section revision

I'm attempting to rewrite this to a more formal English while also doing some reorganization. This will take some time. I know I'll make some mistakes and any corrections, rewordings, and edits are appreciated.

The whole Troubleshooting section in a FAQ format didn't really fit in, pretty informal too. I'm also thinking that the 'Missing Characters' section can be removed (mostly this has to do with special language [not in unicode best way to put it?] fonts.
Any thoughts about the GTK and QT section? Not sure if these are being used anymore.
Nice work thus far.

Installing missing fonts are the solution for the Mozilla Apps problems too. I'll leave both sections in for now. They're frequent problems judging from the forums. Perhaps there will be future article: Text, Fonts and Unicode
I am removing the GTK and QT section. The change can be reverted, if we're mistaken.

Removed The Mozilla apps section. Added the default MS-Windows font settings to the Firefox article. Noted Trebuchet Bold is missing from ttf-ms-fonts package in Fonts.

Comments

Saw your almost-complete re-write here and on the Fonts page. Very nice work Manolo.

Softlinks

They shouldn't be done in relation to Template:Filename; i.e., Template:Codeline. These are dangerous when cleaning a chroot, or deleting a mounted file-system in general. Time 21:31, 5 December 2009 (EST)

And the seemingly superfluous Template:Codeline is added for ease of use with auto-complete. Time 21:36, 5 December 2009 (EST)

xtt

The word "xtt" is used at the beginning but not defined. I must admit that I'm unfamiliar with it. - KitchM 10:29, 23 August 2009 (EDT)

Bitmap fonts

fontconfig (2.8.0-1) does not disable bitmap fonts by default. It does not place the 70-no-bitmaps.conf softlink that the Font Configuration#Enable section suggests removing. Time 21:25, 5 December 2009 (EST)
