Here's a new patch.

- Fixed problem with an extra newline that would pop up in the window. 
Apparently this was caused by extra spaces after the \ in the helpdata.

- Rewrote 'foo' as 'John'.  'foo' is a programmers term which will just
confuse users.  'John' was chosen because it's also short for
'Johnathan'.  Translators will probably want to pick a local name to use
as an example.

- Added a little more explanation for ::, which I apperently didn't
understand right.
