I suggest also mentioning the problem with [u]int8_t casting _to_ a
string. Suggested wording (if after the FAQ about the opposite conversion):
Q: What does lexical_cast<string> of an int8_t or uint8_t not do what I expect?
A: As above, note that int8_t and uint8_t are actually chars and are
formatted as such. To avoid this, cast to an integer type first: lexical_cast<string>(static_cast<int>(n)).
Following are some minor edits to your text:
Q: Why does lexical_cast<int8_t>("127") throw bad_lexical_cast?
commitee --> committee
greate --> great
