Well, after all the posts on the front page today, I am as confused as ever. I have always been told and thought that to do a correct squat, before I descend, I should kind of push my butt down and out, if that makes any sense. It looks just like the picture on the right and helps keep the weight off my toes, back arched. But in one of the posts it says to tilt your pelvis forward. That would be the opposite of what I am doing, right?

"Anterior tilt of the pelvis" = the top of the pelvis tilts forward. So your positioning is correct.

Ah, thank you. I really need to read up on my physiology more. Once upon a time I knew what most of the terminology used here means. Learning never ceases.
