        The minimum version number of Firefox was corrected from 1.5 to 1.05.

        One future thought for the plugin is to use the new Firefox
-       1.5 or greater version of Firefox. This version has added a
+       1.05 or greater version of Firefox. This version has added a
        drawable canvas window that supports hardware acceleration, and
        is designed to support things like rendering directly into the
canvas without needing OpenGL.

Canvas didn't appear until Firefox 2.0. (There never was a 1.05, either, although there was a 1.0.5)

Although, if this is talking about using canvas for gnash's rendering, I _seriously_ doubt that would be a workable idea. For one thing, it would make text selection impossible since canvas is bitmap only, for another it would add another *several* layers of overhead and would probably make decent performance near impossible, and there's probably a bunch of other problems as well. You can talk to people who know more about it than me (I haven't used it for anything, though I did follow as it was being specced) but I think the paragraph should probably just be removed.
