>Guided mode is the screen where you can only preserve or delete partitions, nothing else. Custom mode is the screen where you can set up the partitions to your will.

Hi Kamil,
   I still feel confused about this.In my mind,we can change "mode" during one install.ie,if we changed sth we are in so called custom mode,after that, if we click the blue text
"Create partition layout automatically" we are in Guided mode then.We can also change the mode to "custom mode" by changing sth after we are in Guided mode.

But I agree with you, in order to encourage using different keymaps, we can explicitly say it's allowed. That's why I proposed:
>"We can explicitly say the password _might not_ be set using an English keymap."

 However,if we say the password_might not_be set using an English keymap, people will using a non-English keymap.Then the English one will not be tested.

>Yes, that's basically the same. I prefer to not quote the button labels ("option for using the free space" instead of "choose 'use free space'").
 yeah,that's better.

 Actually,what I concerned is that,there are so many guided mode screen and custome mode screen during one install,what's more, that's what people can see immediately they click the  button.

>Thanks for working on this.
 It's my pleasure.Actually,it's what I should do:)
