		<h3>How you can benefit from Mercurial</h3>
		<ol>
		<!-- The three sections should now grow more compact as you go down, with power and speed the longest and just works only two simple, clean sentences. -->
			<li class="i-1">
				<h4>It is <a href="{% url about %}">fast and powerful</a></h4>
				<p>Mercurial offers you the power and speed to efficiently handle <a href="{% url who_uses %}">projects of any size and kind</a><!--Reference: http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/ProjectsUsingMercurial -->. Every clone contains the whole project history, so committing, branching, tagging and merging are local operations which makes them fast and convenient. You can use a multitude of <a href="http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/Workflows">workflows</a> and easily enhance its functionality with <a href="http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/UsingExtensions">extensions</a>.</p>
			</li>
			<li class="i-2">
				<h4>It is <a href="{% url learn_mercurial %}">easy to learn</a></h4> <!-- point to a site which begins with a random "easy to learn" testimonial and then shows ways to learn Mercurial, from quick start to indepth -->
				<p>You can follow our simple <a href="{% url workflow_guide %}">guide</a> to learn how to revision your documents with Mercurial, or just use the <a href="{% url quick_start %}">quick start</a> to get going instantly. <!--If you already know Subversion, please see <a href="mercurial_for_svn_users">Mercurial for svn users</a>.--></p>

			<li class="i-3">
				<h4>And it just works</h4>
				<!--<p><em>Random quote about usability.</em></p>-->
				<p>Mercurial strives to deliver on each of its promises. Most tasks simply work on the first try and without requiring arcane knowledge. <!--(If one doesn't, that's most likely no feature but a <a href="http://selenic.com/mercurial/bugs/">bug</a>. Please <a href="http://selenic.com/mercurial/bugs/">tell us about it</a>!)
