Summary description:  Framed minipages of a specified total width (text and frame combined)

Announcement text:
 The boxedminipage package is a very simple package that essentially
 just wraps a minipage within an \fbox.

 However, while \fbox{\begin{minipage}{\linewidth}...\end{minipage}}
 juts out into the margin, \begin{boxedminipage}...\end{boxedminipage}
 does not.  Instead, it subtracts the frame's dimensions from the
 specified dimensions of the minipage before typesetting the minipage.

 Version 1.1 merely renames the package from boxedminipage2e to
 boxedminipage, replacing the LaTeX 2.09 package of that name.
