I have edited the wiki to better reflect the situation. I have also 
changed the order ... Educational Psychology 101 says you tell the 
student what is correct first as they are more likely to remember the 
first thing you tell them, then present any argument or past practices 
that are depreciated. I have also simplified the words used.... the 
smaller and easier words you can use the easier it is to understand and 
gain retention in the student.
