Nitpicking, but you have:
+    <para>
+       Currently <productname>PostgreSQL</> provides one built in trigger
+ 	  function, <function>suppress_redundant_updates_trigger</>,


Should we perhaps mention the fulltext triggers (with the appropriate
links) here? If it's intended to be an authoritative list of the
"userspace" triggers we ship, I think that may be a good idea.
