The "Note" at the bottom of screen 1 needs to be rewritten. It should say:
Required information includes the title and personell information for your
dataset. The rest of the information collected here is optional, however it is
highly recommended that you fill in as much as possible.

In the data package wizard page 1 of 14, the last sentence (in the top block of
text) should read "You can provide the following types of information using
this wizard. Also note that the word metadata is used throughout this text.
It should probably be changed to "documentation" or whatever the current choice
of synonym is. The first sentence on this page references the EML guide and
says the user should read it but doesn't say where it is or where you can get
it. Perhaps we could add a link to it that would open a browser?

Suggest the following modification for the opening paragraph:

The Data Package Wizard guides Morpho users through the NEW data package
generation process. A Data Package is the entity used to store and document
ecological datasets that you wish to publicize within the scientific community.
Data Packages have two components: A mandatory dataset description, known as
metadata; and, optionally, the actual dataset described by the metadata.
Morpho uses Ecological Metadata Language (EML) to construct data packages.

Morpho users need not be fluent in EML to enter new data packages with the
Data Paclkage Wizard; however, some EML knowledge is required to modify
EXISTING data packages. Please consult the EML Guide and EML Handbook for
detailed EML descriptions and examples.

Before proceeding to the next step, please assemble these descriptive elements
for your dataset: <bulleted list, two items per line>
