+<p>If you're adding files on an operating system with a case-insensitive
+filesystem (such as Windows), you might find you accidentally add a file
+with the wrong case. You can correct this by copying the file somewhere
+temporary, deleting the file from Subversion, then adding the copy with
+the correct case, or by performing a move operation with Subversion URLs.
+Using URLs is recommended, because it will preserve history for the file,
+and will take effect immediately.</p>
+<p>For example, to rename <tt>file.java</tt> to <tt>File.java</tt>, do:
+svn mv svn://svnserver/path/to/file.java svn://svnserver/path/to/File.java
