Also, reduce redundancy.

-    A <dfn>distributed gateway port</dfn> is a logical router port

-    gateway chassis when they can be, but when needed they do take

   <h3>Distributed Gateway Ports</h3>
 
   <p>
-    <dfn>Distributed gateway ports</dfn> are logical router patch ports
-    that directly connect distributed logical routers to logical
-    switches with external connection.
-  </p>
-
-  <p>
-    There are two types of external connections.  Firstly, connection to
-    physical network through a localnet port.  Secondly, connection to
-    another OVN deployment, which will be introduced in section "OVN
-    Deployments Interconnection".
+    This section provides additional details on distributed gateway ports,
+    outlined earlier.
