"Verify your ISO download" specifies different algorithms for Linux and Windows



Hi!  The ISO verification page for Linux:

	http://fedoraproject.org/en/verify

specifies that you use the SHA256 algorithm for computing an ISO's checksum.
However, the Windows verification page:

	http://docs.fedoraproject.org/readme-burning-isos/en_US/sn-validating-files.html

says to use the SHA1 algorithm. I downloaded one of the suggested Windows files, HashCalc. The SHA1 algorithm most definitely does NOT produce a checksum to match that given in the checksum files listed on the first page above (Linux verification). SHA256 is the correct algorithm and having the HashCalc program calculate that gave
me a matching checksum.

A minor glitch in an otherwise excellent web site. Thank you for the time you put
into maintaining it.

Sincerely,
    Alex
