OK (almost --I'm lost in all these dances :-)

Please, can you replace the existing notes with the following?

* [phrase library..[@/libs/dynamic_bitset/ Dynamic Bitset]:]
   * Constructor "do the right thing" dispatch, a la standard sequence
     (mimics the proposed resolution of
     issue 438], currently in the [^C++0x] working paper)
   * Improvements to documentation, code examples and implementation.

If you are wondering what has changed, here we go:

   - the first link uses the "canonical" form libs/library_name/,
     without naming either index.htm[l] or dynamic_bitset.html;
     this is what I've been taught in the early days of Boost :-)
     If it doesn't work with the current website
     beta/upcoming/whoknows release arrangement feel free to
     change it back.

   - grammatically, both entries are "noun based"; mixing verb
     based and noun based entries was considered a severe error
     when I went at school (admittedly, some ten years ago)

   - "sequences" -> "sequence containers", the new name

   - link to description of lib issue 438

   - removed "miscellaneous", which doesn't mean anything

   - perhaps something else nobody will ever want to know :-)

The only reason I'm not doing this myself is that I don't have a
working copy of the website tree and that setting up the
documentation toolchain is a pain. It's a bless that you offered
to take care of this. Thanks!
