Linux has

Contents, Actions, Kinds, Phrasebook, Rules, Scenes, World

I used to have it the OS X way, but I changed it shortly before the release of 6G60 in response to an e-mail conversation.

Here's what Graham said about the difference between the OS X and Windows versions:
"the tabs are displayed in alphabetical order, but Contents is the default. Honestly, though, I think I like it your way better - i.e. Contents first and then the rest in alphabetical order..."

We should standardize the name of the fourth tab to be "Phrases" or "Phrasebook", though.

I recommend Phrases over Phrasebook so as not to cause confusion with Rulebooks.

Yes, I prefer Phrases, and indeed I think Windows is the one to follow here.

I've changed to Phrases now.

I think we should also change the NI compiler to produce HTML that says "Phrase Index" at the top instead of "Phrasebook Index".

After further consideration, "Phrasebook" has been settled on, rather than "Phrases".
