[Pmwiki-users] Restore feature

I'll vote for revert, as it is more concise than my previous suggestion.

Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary defines revert as:

revert: to come or go back (as to a former condition, period, or subject)

I think this best describes what the function does.

I would still like to suggest that revert take you to a preview of the page
with a confirmation button, rather than the edit page.

Revert sounds nice--maybe I'll switch to it.

Hmmph.  iCab is just being annoying there.  FONT is a valid tag in the
HTML 4.01 Transitional DTD (which is what PmWiki specifies as the document
type definition for the HTML it produces).  iCab ought to be able to 
check a document against the specification the document claims to conform
