[patch,wwwdata] Update Fortran section of gcc-4.2/changes.html

:ADDPATCH wwwdocs:

The following patch documents the record-marker change and adds also
some Fortran 2003 changes to the list of changes.

According to Gerd Pfeiffer: "Note that for Y-specific changes [...] it's
perfectly fine for Y-specific maintainers to approve/commit them
directly. No need for the wwwdocs maintainer to micro-manage."

Thus I only need an approval by a gfortran maintainer.
