specifying the oldstable and oldoldstable releases in the list in /releases/index

I've just noticed that in the list of releases at the end of www.debian.org/releases/index.*.html, we just mark testing, stable, and all the rest as "obsolete stable release".
I think it would be useful to specify oldstable and the one(s) that are under long term support.

Attached you can find a diff as a proposal.

I'm not sure about the term "oldoldstable" (is "old <q>oldstable</q>" better? I've seen the former in the Debian wiki, that's why I wrote it like that).

Best regards
