Spelling: "semicolon", "literal".

I suggest a tweak to the wording:

  "    svn:auto-props     - A list of file patterns with properties to apply on\n"
  "      new files. Separate multiple properties with a semicolon; to insert a\n"
  "      literal semicolon, double it.\n"

+1. For now, this is the place where we document the special props. The other prop commands refer to this one.

(I was recently thinking it would be nice to move the description of special props to its own help command, "svn help properties" for example, but that's another topic.)
