-    <item><p>Second step...</p></item>
-    <item><p>Third step...</p></item>

+    <item><p>Select <em>PGP Key</em> from the list of options.</p></item>
+    <item><p>Click <gui>Continue</gui>.</p></item>
+    <item><p>Enter your full given name and your email address. You can also
+    add a comment, such as whether the key is a personal key or a key for work,
+    your date of birth, or the date you created the key.</p></item>

+  While your key is being created, move your mouse around and press some keys
+  on your keyboard. This will help <app>Passwords and Keys</app> to create
+  a truly random key.</p>
+  <note><p>Adding a comment to a <em>PGP Key</em> is entirely optional, and
+  many people prefer to not use comments when creating keys.</p></note>
