fix self inflicted conflict,  add headline for unicode faq

  Using an http proxy like nginx, you can load balance GETs across nodes, and direct all POSTs,
PUTs and DELETEs to a master node. CouchDB's triggered replication facility can keep multiple
read-only servers in sync with a single master server, so by replicating from master ->
slaves on a regular basis, you can keep your content up to date.
