 Comments/feedback on strings? Is anything ambiguous? Will any of them be
 difficult to translate? Should we include the entire warning the user will
 see in the message log or will this be enough?

 Message on index.html:

 Attention: We now distribute pluggable transport bridges, if you have
 never used these or don't know what these are, please start at Step 1.

 Instructions on bridges.html:

 To use the above bridge lines, go to Vidalia's Network settings page, and
 click "My ISP blocks connections to the Tor network". Then add each bridge
 address one at a time.

 Check Vidalia's Message Log, click on the Advanced tab and if you see
 either of "Error parsing Bridge address" or "We were supposed to connect
 to bridge 'x.x.x.x:y' using a pluggable transport" then you must download
 the [https://www.torproject.org/projects/obfsproxy.html.en#download
 Pluggable Transports Tor Browser Bundle] before you can use these bridges.

 If you are not certain you downloaded the
 [https://www.torproject.org/projects/obfsproxy.html.en#download Pluggable
 Transports Tor Browser Bundle], please download it now and then add these
 bridges using the above instructions.
