Branch and Switch question

Hello all,

I've been reading with interest the recent discussions on branching and read
the SVN and TSVN docs several times, but something isn't working as
expected.

I created a test repository at c:\_subversion\repos and a "code" directory
at c:\_subversion\code. Under that I have \trunk and \branches, and
\branches has \client under it to represent a client branch.

I added three files to \trunk, index.jsp, login.jsp and header.jsp. They
don't mean anything other than they are representative files. This was all
committed as revision 1.

Then using either TSVN "Branch/Tag" or "svn copy trunk branches/client" when
in the c:\_subversion directory, I get a trunk folder under
c:\_subversion\branches\client.
     Output:
     C:\_Subversion\Code>svn copy trunk branches/client
     A branches\client\trunk

In following the examples from both the SVN book and the TSVN help files, I
expected not to have the \trunk folder under \client, instead I expected to
see the three files in \client, index.jsp, login.jsp and header.jsp.

Did I do something wrong or understand the books wrong?

Thanks a million,

Bill
