How Does Pepto-Bismol Work?

(bismuth subsalicylate)

The label says:

"Soothing Relief for 5 Symptoms
--Upset Stomach

Isn't that a pretty tall order? Or are all these things the result of the same thing/condition?

Their web site says some doctor created it for "child cholera," but "studies" didn't discover the active ingredient (bismuth subsalicylate) until long afterward. How did this doctor know what to put in? And exactly what does bismuth subsalicylate do? I know the ads say it "coats" the stomach, but I doubt one little capful could really do that.
