Feature #10178: Rephrase syslinux screen
Wording of boot menu entries ("Live") is unclear
As suggested by Chris Lamb <firstname.lastname@example.org> on tails-dev in September, 2015, "Live" is hard to undertand. Then an interesting discussion about it happened on tails-dev@ and tails-ux@, but in the end no consensus was achieved. It seems to me that most of the proposals on these threads are better than the current state of things, so IMO until -ux@ tells us what we should put in there, we can pick basically any of them, and improve things. This ticket is about doing that.
Boot menu: drop the "Boot Tails" title and replace "Live" entries with "Boot Tails" ones (refs: #11975).
Start adjusting end-user documentation to match new syslinux menu (refs: #11975).
List a bunch of parts of end-user doc that need adjustments to match updated syslinux menu (refs: #11975).
Replace "Boot Tails" with "boot loader menu", and adjust styling to the fact this name is not displayed anymore (refs: #11975).
I've used the same styling that was already used in one place for "boot loader
menu" in startup_options.mdwn, for consistency.
Replace "boot menu" with "boot loader menu" when it's about the later (refs: #11975).
Note that this was less mechanical than expected: there are places where "boot
menu" means "whatever menu the BIOS/firmware offers to pick a boot device".
I did not change those, so now we have two different phrasings, for two
different menus, which sounds better than reusing the same wording in
Replace the "boot_menu" anchor with "boot_loader_menu", preserving backwards compatibility with links already published elsewhere (refs: #11975).
I figured it was better if URLs used the same wording as the text they're about,
especially when the previous wording ("boot menu") is used elsewhere in our doc
to mean something else.
Update screenshots and alt text according to syslinux menu update (refs: #11975).
