Error in TSVN documentation (regarding svn:externals)?

I was reading chapter "5.2.4. Referenced Projects" of the TSVN help
file to find out the syntax for a svn:externals property.

I think there is an error in that chapter:

- In the second paragraph and the following examples, it says that the
svn:externals property must have the format "name url" or "name -rREV

- On the other hand, in the later examples (e.g. below the heading
"Relative to parent directory" it says that the externals definition
is "../../widgets/foo common/foo-widget" which (if I understand
correctly) corresponds to the format "url name" (not "name url").

I then checked some existing externals in my repository, and found
that they also have the format ("url name" resp. "relative_path
Therefore I think the examples at the beginning of chapter 5.2.4 are wrong.

Best regards
