Content improvement suggestion

Wonderful template which will be very useful. Few suggestions:

  1. I wonder if the opening sentence should mention 1841-1911, rather than just 1841-1891 (although later ones aren't available on film, beginners may not know the census is available through 1911 and that should probably be the first thing, shouldn't it?).
  2. I would like to see a link to a more descriptive Wiki article which gives more detail. For example, do all of these sites have info for all of the censuses? Do all have a searchable index? Do some have additional features that others don't, such as search by address or parish? What is different about them which might help a user know which is best for their needs? If such an article exists, link to it. If not, "someone" should create one.
  3. Add a general statement telling users whether they need to check just one, more than one, or all of the sites (or referring to article just described).
  4. The text for FreeCen is not a complete sentence and I'm not sure what it means. Please reword.
  5. The opening sentence (see also #1, above) says film for 1841-1891, but 1891 is only on fiche.
