Hamishwillee - Subedited/reviewed

Hi Sara

This was pretty good - it is clear why you'd use it and mostly how. I have subedited for English and made more pretty :-)

You will note how I changed the definition of the bit on how to launch the About to JUST cover the relevant code, rather than just code dumping the XAML. XAML code dumps are almost unreadable - usually it is best to highlight the relevant bit that you're going to change only.

This still needs a little work. I have not updated the section on "How to customize the About" from what you had. This is just a xaml and c# dump and I don't think that makes it very easy to see what needs to be changed. I would split the XAML section into two - in the first section explain "has default sections here where you change the default page title (and whatever else you can change here). Show the original sections.

Then I would separately have the new sections you plan to add and explain what they are for "We can customise this XAML to add XYZ by putting the following components after/before/whatever ABC".

For the code the interesting thing is that this gets the appname and the version from the manifest. That is worth saying. Anything else? After explaining briefly what it does can then just have text "The relevant code sections are shown below".

Hope that makes sense. Should take about 5 mins if you understand the code.
