Thanks for the heads up on the html (I love Microsoft - give me back my linux box!)

The question I have with this approach is what does my diff look like afterwards? For example, if my base version is 1.3 and I copy the entire file from the branch and check it in to make version 1.4, what would my cvs diff look like between 1.3 and 1.4? My potential objection is that CVS would see this as a completely new file with every line changed. I probably can live with that, but I don't like it.  I'll have to test it.

Check out the source and target branches in different working
directories and then copy all the files from the source to the target
and check them in.
