Message Thank you! That was *very* helpful! Obviously I'm not the only one that finds
the naming of the two confusing. To Stefan and Daniel: what you say is
literally true. Nonetheless its confusing because "diff" alone doesn't say
what its diffing with (will it ask me for another file name?) and "diff with
previous version" intuitively suggests that you want to diff the working
copy with the previously checked in version (ie the latest). The seperator
between the two further adds to the perplexity. Perhaps if diff were renamed
"diff against latest" or something like that.

Just a suggestion. T SVN is great!
cheers
