Discussion:

Table 69 says this about a_uniq.insert(t):

inserts t if and only if there is no element in the container with key equivalent to the key of t. The bool component of the returned pair indicates whether the insertion takes place and the iterator component of the pair points to the element with key equivalent to the key of t.

The description should be more specific about exactly how the bool component indicates whether the insertion takes place.

Proposed resolution:

Change the text in question to

...The bool component of the returned pair is true if and only if the insertion takes place...
