In [ostream], the synopsis of class basic_ostream says:

  // partial specializationss
  template<class traits>
    basic_ostream<char,traits>& operator<<( basic_ostream<char,traits>&,
                                            const char * );


Proposed resolution:

In the synopsis in [ostream], remove the // partial specializationss comment. Also remove the same comment (correctly spelled, but still incorrect) from the synopsis in [ostream.inserters.character].

[ Pre-Redmond: added [ostream.inserters.character] because of Martin's comment in c++std-lib-8939. ]
