Re: [Usability]Proxy capplet

Hi Jorn,

I have a few minor HIG- and GDSG-related suggestions for your mockups:

s/HTTP Proxy/HTTP proxy
s/SSL Proxy/SSL proxy
s/FTP Proxy/FTP proxy
s/Socks Host/Socks host

All of these to comply with HIG capitalization guidelines, Chapter 8, 
Table 8.3.

s/Port Number/Port number
s/User Name/Username

The first of these is to comply with HIG capitalization guidelines. The 
Recommended Terminology section of the Style Guide suggests spelling 
username as one word.

Also, would it be possible to put " Details" in the 
window titlebar rather than in the dialog?
