problems understanding branches

Sorry to disturb, but I have some problems understanding how to manage
tags, branches, switches, merges etc with svn.

Please, assume the following scenario and point me to the right track:

A repository: http://server/svn/repos contains the following tree:

/main.c
/utils/utils.h
/utils/utils.c

Let's say the tree is at revision 4.

Step 1:
 Programmer Bprog wants to make a tag (can he/she make a named tag?
how?) and after that

Step 2:
 he/she wants to make a branch at this point.

Step 3:
 Programmer Hprog works further on the main trunk and,
 when he/she arrives at revision 10, they want to merge the branch
 on which Bprog was working (how does the revision numbers
 get modified for his/her branch?) into the main trunk.

Step 4:
 They want to make a tag here. How can Bprog continue working
 on his branch (can he/she use the same branch
 or does he/she has to make another one?)?

Thanks.

P.S.: maybe this example should go into the docs. It will surely help.
