Examples with URI and IRI in the svn 1.1 release notes

On <http://subversion.tigris.org/svn_1.1_releasenotes.html>, it is

In the 1.0 commandline client, users had to escape URLs manually.
The client only accepted "legally correct" URLs, such as

  svn checkout http://host/path%20with%20space/project/espa%F1a

The 1.1 commandline client now knows how to do what web-browsers have
been doing for long time: it auto-escapes characters like spaces and
other upper-ascii i18n characters.

  svn checkout "http://host/path with space/project/españa"

This is a bit confusing, but this text seems to say: With 1.0, one had
to use escape sequences, e.g.

  svn checkout http://host/path%20with%20space/project/espa%F1a

but with 1.1, one can write instead

  svn checkout "http://host/path with space/project/españa"

which is more human-readable. However, this won't work on this example,
since "ñ" is encoded as %C3%B1 (from the UTF-8 sequence), not as %F1.

The first "svn checkout" line should probably be changed to

  svn checkout http://host/path%20with%20space/project/espa%C3%B1a

or a completely different example should be given to show that this
is not the same thing.
