 Priority:  Normal                   |   Milestone:  Website & Documentation
Component:  guide                    |     Version:  1.6.0

 Section 4.2 ("Creating a Portfile") says "The first line of a new Portfile
 must be set as shown" ("# $Id$") but section 4.7.1 ("Port Style") says
 "the top line of all Portfiles should use a modeline that defines soft
 tabs for the vim and emacs editors". Unify these conflicting directives to
 instead state that a portfile should start with a modeline on the first
 line and the Id tag on the second line.
