Recently I stumbled upon FASM entry on Wikipedia and I noticed that it is very chaotic, with remarks that are not very encyclopedic and randomly selected information. I already had a discussion about its various shortcoming with some member of this board in private, and we think that it should be reviewed and rewritten, but for that task someone with a better expertise in English (and perhaps some Wikipedia editing experience) would be needed. Is there anyone here that could help with it?

To any volunteer I will provide information about what already has been discussed.

Tomasz, since it's your "baby", so to speak, tell us what the most important points you wish to convey are.

If I had to brainstorm, I'd mention these (rough) ideas:

= OS portable, x86, IDEs, SSSO, COFF + ELF, PE + MZ, macros, SIMD, speedy, opcode size optimizations, self-assembles, ....

P.S. Just for comparison, NASM article mentions:

* target architectures, popularity, supported host OSes, license, output formats, Intel-style (but unlike MASM), simple inline examples, linker needed, brief 2.x history, (plus has a few references, critical for Wikipedia acceptance)

My English is not perfect, but I could still help. I can also do the Czech translation.
