Well, it's tomorrow as of yesterday... or something like that, and
Magnus has kindly put those changes into his version for testing:
http://magnus.webdev.postgresql.org/docs/8.3/static/functions-datetime.html

This includes a fix to the caution and warning box titles which were a
tad too small and pressed up against the top of the box.

Do you mean outside of the docs?  If so, it shouldn't affect anything
else.  If you mean within the docs, I don't think varying monospace
font sizes would look very consistent.

But the changes are up for you to see anyway so see what you think.
