it depends on what you intend to do: if you just want to have a look at rev 8099 and don't want to check in any changes based on the version, a simple "svn up -r8099 " will do the job - but you won't be able to check in any changes.

Otherwise, if you wish to undo the changes in the versions between 8099 and 8109, your command is the proper one.

when using "svn up -r8099", this is what svn info will report - you updated you working copy to be at rev 8099. Otherwise, using the merge command, you changed your working copy (which is at rev 8109) so that any changes between the two revisions have been backed out. However, your changes are local and you working copy thus remains at rev 8109 - if you commit you'll get rev 8110. Revision numbers always go forward in time.
