Have added messages and staticfiles app to INSTALLED_APPS example, since they are now included in the tuple by default. Also, since the book does not deal with either of these, have changed the wording slightly to emphasize that not all apps will be discussed later.
Replaced the render_to_response shortcut with render everywhere because newer django code tends not to use render_to_response at all. Also updated text where it refered to render_to_response arguments and the use of RequestContext with render.
The old book site had a custom reST builder that would ignore extra leading intendation when the element only contained a list or a table. But in vanilla reST, that markup results in <blockquote><ul>... etc. Rather than port over the hacked-up builder, I just fixed the markup.
