  	* tutorials/The_Basics/index.htrw: reverted an incorrect change
  	about how to anchor a floating selection, rewrote several sections
  	to reflect the changes in user interface or tool behavior since
  	GIMP 1.x.  Fixes bug #454584.
  
  	* bugs/index.htrw: How Tos or How-Tos seem to be more correct
  	English than How To's.  Fixes bug #453784.

First of all: Blur the image a bit (Gaussian blur at 5 may be a good
start). Now add a new layer to the image with the help of the layers
dialog's Ops menu. Choose it to be white. It will be created above
the just made text layer effectively hiding it. It will be active
which can be seen from the fact that it has a blue background in the
layers dialog. Click some times on the eye symbol to see how you can
make a layer invisible and make the other layer active by clicking
on its small preview in the layer dialog. At the end, leave the new
white layer visible and active. Use the plasma plugin to make this
layer a little colorful (Yes, you are invited to experiment with the
parameters...). The layer dialog should look something like this

Make sure you checked Preserve Transparency (Keep Trans.) and then
use the paint tool to make the copy of the logo black (You don't
have to be careful: The preserve transparency (Keep Trans.) button
will let you paint only on opaque parts of the image). This will
give you:
Make sure you check the Keep Transparency option (the little box
next to the layer mode) and then fill that duplicated layer with

a black color from the color selector and drop it over the image.

Now make sure you unchecked the button again, blur the layer and
move it (with the move tool) some pixels to the right and downwards.
Adjust the transparency with the slider so the background will shine
through: You've just generated a so-called drop shadow, which
greatly enhances the 3d effect and is used in very many places.
Now make sure you uncheck the button again and move the layer some
pixels to the right and downwards. You can move it with the Move
tool while pressing Shift so that it moves the current layer instead
of picking a new one. (Alternatively, can use <span
class="filter">&lt;Image&gt; Layer -&gt; Transform -&gt;
Offset</span> and enter a small offset for both X and Y: this will
offset the contents of the layer without moving the layer itself.)
Then blur your layer and adjust the transparency with the slider so
