[PATCH] fix typos/consistency in book (ch03.xml)

From: Mason Thomas <mlt_svn_at_sbcglobal.net>
Date: 2003-11-13 09:05:45 CET

Hi,

the following patch fixes a few typos in the Subversion book, including
typos and internal consistency. I've also changed a section heading,
because "Other Frequently Used Commands" really aren't frequently used.

As an aside, I noticed that footnote #2 in this chapter is not present
in the pdf version on red-bean.com, but it appears to be OK in the xml
code. I have no idea how to fix this, but thought the people in power
should know about it.
