Comment (by ryelle):

 The PR linked above iterates on the previous patch — it cleans up some of
 the links & HTML in the strings, and tweaks how the content is currently
 displayed so it can be readable until we get a proper layout (I'm happy to
 collaborate with any designers to go over what framework we have, what we
 can easily do, what we can stretch…). I also added [https://user-
 b64b63cf4ffc.png a screenshot of the current content.]

 There are still more than a few places with html tags in strings. For

 `<strong>Inline image editing</strong> - Crop, rotate, and zoom your
 photos right from the image block. If you do a lot of work with images,
 this alone could save you hours every week!`

 We [https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/best-
 practices/internationalization/ try to avoid this] usually, but splitting
 these strings up would mean more fragmented translations. Should these be
 tweaked to remove the extra HTML? Is this use of HTML not an issue? some
 translator input would be good here.

 The list of gutenberg release tags is a lot — is there a single make post,
 or maybe a tag, that we could link to instead? If not, we'll want to
 figure out some way to make those more descriptive for link navigation
 (ex, screen readers).

 For accessibility (since headings came up late last release), the current
 heading outline is:

 1. Welcome to WordPress 5.5.
         2. Speed
         2. Search
         2. Security
         2. Speed. Search. Security. The power of three big improvements,
 all packed into WordPress 5.5.
         2. Highlights from the block editor
         2. Wait! There’s more!
                 3. Better accessibility
         2. Just for developers
                 3. Lazy-loading images
                 3. PHPMailer
                 3. Other changes for developers
