      Description

      See attached screenshot.

      1) Suggested changes to the introductory text.
      Existing text:

      You can import the content from another wiki into Confluence using the Universal Wiki Converter. The UWC supports many wiki dialects already, but the UWC is an extensible frameowkr, so it's possible to write new conversion modules for other wikis. Check out the developer documentation.

      Suggested text:

      You can import content from another wiki into Confluence using the Universal Wiki Converter. The UWC supports many wiki dialects. In addition, the UWC is an extensible framework, which means that developers can continue writing new conversion modules for other wikis. Check out the developer documentation.

      2) Suggested change to the 'note': remove the words "via the Atlassian Plugin Repository" because they may confusion.
      Suggested text:

      Please note: The UWC is a standalone application that communicates with Confluence remotely. You cannot install the UWC directly into Confluence. Instead, download the UWC separately and run it according to the instructions below.

      3) Remove the second full stop and tidy up the link format in the last bullet point:

      If you have questions, please visit the UWC Forum. .

      4) Suggested change to the 5th bullet point:
      Existing text:

      For wiki specific information, including which wikis are currently supported, see Wiki Specific Notes.

      Suggested text:

      For information about specific wikis, including a list of currently supported wikis, see Wiki Specific Notes.

      5) I'd suggest that we make the link destination less specific in the above text. At the moment, it links to an anchor at a section in a specific page:
      http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFEXT/UWC+User+Documentation#UWCUserDocumentation-SpecificWikiNotes
      This makes us vulnerable to documentation changes, and reduces flexibility of the documentation.
      Instead, how about changing the text and link to the following:

      For information about specific wikis, including a list of currently supported wikis, see the UWC documentation.
