There was a new string in debian-installer today..

Shouldn't this be e.g instead of i.e?

Actually, "for example" would be a clearer choice of words from the point of view of translations. If there's room for it, that's what I'd use, personally.


PS:  Thanks, Daniel, for the ancient history URL.  It's cool!
