Synaptic is sometimes used when Software center works as well

Bug Description

I fount two instances where the manual tells the user to use Synaptic instead of the Software Center. Using the Software center is preferable since its user friendlier and Synaptic probably won't be included by 10.10 (or even in Lucid, see bug#506498)

On page 137 (troubleshooting -> Some text looks incorrect or corrupted) the manual tells the user to use synaptic to install the package "tts-mscorefonts-installer". In Lucid the package can also be installed through the Software Center as "Installer for Microsoft TrueType core fonts" (tested in beta1)

Also on page 137 (troubleshooting ->I can’t play certain audio or video files, or interact with some web-sites) the manual says to use synaptic instead of the Software Center to install the ubuntu-restricted-extras (name in the Software Center: "Ubuntu restricted extras")
