Move Ohloh bar out of menu list, as the size has changed.

Normalize the release notes markup to use common CSS.

20 <dt>Faster initial startup</dt>
21 <dd>To achieve faster startup times - required for example by
22 Google App Engine which restarts the servlet regularly -
23 ABCL now delays reflection calls associated function-class
24 resolution by resolving functions upon their first call.</dd>
25 <dt>Portable FASLs</dt>
26 <dd>As part of a fixed bug, ABCL now has portable fasls: all
27 fasls use UTF-8 as their encoding, instead of the system dependent
28 default encoding. This should help easy deployment and deployment
29 to Google App Engine. Because of this change, the FASL version
30 number has increased to 35.</dd>
31 <dt>Faster special variable lookup</dt>
32 <dd>As part of the continued search for performance improvements
33 has the lookup mechanism for special variable value lookup been
34 changed. Part of this change is the introduction of an API to
35 record unbinding marks for unwinding later on.</dd>
36 <dt>Improved reliability with exceptions</dt>
37 <dd>Out-of-memory or Stack-overflow conditions can be handled
38 programatically by binding handlers for them in handler-bind.
39 In addition, program execution used to continue on caught but
40 unhandled generic (Throwable) exceptions. This is no longer
41 the case: only specific exceptions get caught, or the generic
42 exception is handled, preventing execution from 'just' continuing.</dd>
43 <dt>Fixed memory leak with functions-with-documentation</dt>
44 <dd>Functions with documentation going out of scope because of
45 being unused were incorrectly not GC-ed. This has now been resolved.</dd>
