@MonicaCellio Okay, I've updated it; would you consider it improved? I did want to retain the Wikipedia quote, because that was the impetus for the question. But I also want to make it better for search engines and non-experts stumbling upon our site.
Heh, weird. I seem to have been given a Nice Answer badge for this a few hours ago, but it has 9 votes, not 10, and there's nothing interesting in my reputation history (like a vote retraction). I wonder if somebody upvoted and then withdrew it within the five-minute window, but in the meantime the badge script ran? (Not worried or anything; it's just a puzzle.)
