Tweaks to Dancetty + new charges

The fess dancetty should only have had 3 points, this has now been corrected. The pieces of other dancetty ordinaries have also been enlarged. New charges include the popinjay (a parrot), the sea-lion (a mythical creature), the maple leaf and a natural eagle.

Further Website Improvements

I have completed some improvements to the create page: error messages are now more prominent, and there is a button to report them; social links have been added which allow you to post a link to the completed blazon to all your favourite social tools. In addition, a new page has been added which provides translations of blazons from French into English.
