Well, looks like the gmail web interface messed that up. Let's try
and see if Thunderbird gets it "right". (Notes at work actually
showed the old one fine too.)

I'm embarrassed I'm having problems with such a trivial patch...

+<h2>Creating a custom release</h2>
+<p>It is preferred to use the patch process and have your changes accepted
+and applied to trunk to be released on the normal Subversion release schedule.
+However, if you feel that you need to make changes that would not be
+widely accepted by the Subversion developer community or need
+to provide earlier custom releases, you should follow some guidelines.</p>
+<p>First, make sure you follow the <a
+Subversion trademark policy</a>. You will need to differentiate your release
+from the standard Subversion releases to reduce any potential confusion
+caused by your custom release.</p>
+<p>Second, consider creating a branch in the public subversion repository
+to track your changes and to potentially allow your custom changes to be
+merged into the normal Subversion functionality.</p>
