www. in subdomains

Having just answered a support request on the matter, I'm thinking it might be nic to modify FAQ 131 a little.

Currently:

* A personalised subdomain name (http://yourusername.livejournal.com rather than http://www.livejournal.com/users/yourusername). Access to this domain name will always use the fast servers, so you can give that URL to your friends for them to read your LiveJournal.

Suggest changing it to:

* A personalised subdomain name (http://yourusername.livejournal.com rather than http://www.livejournal.com/users/yourusername). Access to this domain name will always use the fast servers, so you can give that URL to your friends for them to read your LiveJournal. Note that this subdomain does not include "www" at the begining.

It's a very minor change, but people seem to be indoctrinated to the idea of URLs starting with www, so explicitly pointing out that LJ subdomains don't might save a little confusion.
