#6733 closed Bug (fixed)

Text Alignment toolbar tooltips incorrectly use "justify" to mean "align"

The Text Alignment buttons incorrectly use the term "justify" to mean "align". Text justification means that the text spans from one margin to another without any ragging on any side. Our "Left/Right/Center Justify" functions, however, create a text that is ragged from one or both sides and thus NOT justified, but aligned.

Moreover, "left/right/center justify" are established terms that describe what happens with the last, incomplete line of the justified text, so CKEditor uses them in an entirely incorrect meaning.

I suggest we start with correcting the toolbar tooltips to stop confusing the end users with descriptions that do not match either what the function does or what its button shows.

Proposed changes:
Left Justify -> Align Left
Center Justify -> Center
Right Justify -> Align Right
Block Justify -> Justify

The same must be done with the other English language file.

Also, this ticket is targeted (correctly) to the 3.5, and the code has been committed on trunk.
