It depends on the mail tool: many mail composers do really unfortunate
things to URL's, like breaking them at the "-" inappropriately.. In your
case, the URL was broken as follows:

>>>> <http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn-
>>>> book.html#svn.advanced.vendorbr>

That, of course, is useless. You need to cut and paste the bits together to
get something like:


Some mail clients do well with the <URL> syntax to display clickable URL's,
but for flat text mailing lists like this one, I find that it's just asking
for brokenness with many mail clients.
