yes, so it is. This is a secondary problem, but I wanted that you know 
this Idea:

Most steps of bug submission will need some explication, but it's not 
easy to know what problems a beginner might have. So int might be useful 
to adapt the help texts due to the requests of the users. That adapting 
would be more easy if we would have help texts with more or less public 
access that can be modified by QA team member without modification of 
the code of the Assistant.

Additionally it might be useful to have translated versions of the 
assistant for users that do not speak English.

I believe for the current status of the Assistant you should use 
consequently variables for all texts and a "text data base" (variables 
definition).  We can think later about the problem how to assign these 
text variables from an external source.

Of course that will cause some additional expense for the code, and we 
will need come conventions for the texts so that modifications or 
translations will not destroy page view.

Today I will work some hours at my PC, if you like and if you think that 
some clarification will be needed,we can meet in the IRC 
(Rainer_Bielefeld will be active in IRC when I am available).
