Added a link to FAQ for replication and formatting to enchance comprehension. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
+ The documented way to do replication is available at this URL [http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Frequently_asked_questions#how_replication
here]
+ 
+ == Expanded explanation ==
+ 
  Fire up Futon and head over to the replication option. The URL is http://localhost:5984/_utils/replicator.html
  
- The replication option prompts you to either specify a CouchDB instance to push towards
or a CouchDB instance to pull from. If the replication is not within the same CouchDB instance
you will need to specific a URL.
+ The replication option prompts you to either specify a CouchDB instance to push towards
or a CouchDB instance to pull from. If the replication is not within the same CouchDB instance
you will need to specific a URI.
- The correct format for the URL is: http://<address>:<port>/<database name>
+ The correct format for the URI is: http://<address>:<port>/<database name>
  
- e.g http://192.168.197.132:5984/test_suite_db_b
+ ''remote database:'' http://192.168.197.132:5984/test_suite_db_b to ''local database:''
test_suite_db_b
+ 
+ This will replicate the information at the remote database URI to the local database test_suite_db_b.
  
  It is important to specific the database name in the URL as Futon does not assume anything
with respect to the source or destination database based upon the originating or destination
database.
