    77At the top-level of the repository browser is the '''Repository Index''', listing all the configured repositories.
    88Each repository has a name which is used as a path prefix in a "virtual" file hierarchy encompassing all the available repositories.
    9 One of the repositories can be configured with an empty name; this is the default repository. When such a default repository is present, its top-level files and directories are also listed, in a '''Default Repository''' section placed before the repository index. If the default repository is the only repository associated with the Trac environment, then the '''Repository Index''' will be omitted. This means that after upgrading a single-repository Trac of version 0.11 (or earlier) to a multi-repository Trac (0.12), the repository browser will look and feel the same, that single repository becoming automatically the "default" repository.

    11 Directory entries are displayed in a list with sortable columns. The list entries can be sorted by ''Name'', ''Size'', ''Age'' or ''Author'' by clicking on the column headers. The sort order can be reversed by clicking on a given column header again.
     11Directory entries are displayed in a list with sortable columns. The list entries can be sorted by ''Name'', ''Size'', ''Age''/''Date'' or ''Author'' by clicking on the column headers. The third sortable column is labeled //Age// when the //Time format// [/prefs/localization preference] is //Relative// and //Date// when the //Time format// is //Absolute//. The sort order can be reversed by clicking on a given column header again.

    1313The browser can be used to navigate through the directory structure by clicking on the directory names.
     
    1616Note that there's also a ''Revision Log'' navigation link that will do the same for the path currently being examined.
    1717Clicking on the ''diff'' icon after revision number will display the changes made to the files modified in that revision.
    18 Clicking on the ''Age'' of the file - will take you to that changeset in the timeline.
     18Clicking on the ''Age''/''Date'' of the file - will take you to that changeset in the timeline.

    2020It's also possible to browse directories or files as they were in history, at any given repository revision. The default behavior is to display the latest revision but another revision number can easily be selected using the ''View revision'' input field at the top of the page.

    22 The color bar next to the ''Age'' column gives a visual indication of the age of the last change to a file or directory, following the convention that '''[[span(style=color:#88f,blue)]]''' is oldest and '''[[span(style=color:#f88,red)]]''' is newest, but this can be [TracIni#browser-section configured].

    2424At the top of the browser page, there's a ''Visit'' drop-down menu which you can use to select some interesting places in the repository, for example branches or tags.
    2525This is sometimes referred to as the ''browser quickjump'' facility.
    2626The precise meaning and content of this menu depends on your repository backend.
    27 For Subversion, this list contains by default the top-level trunk directory and sub-directories of the top-level branches and tags directories (`/trunk`, `/branches/*`, and `/tags/*`). This can be [TracIni#svn-section configured] for more advanced cases.
     27For Subversion, this list contains by default the top-level trunk directory and sub-directories of the top-level branches and tags directories (`/trunk`, `/branches/*`, and `/tags/*`). This can be configured for more advanced cases through the `[svn]` [TracIni#svn-branches-option "branches"] and [TracIni#svn-tags-option "tags"] options.

    29 If you're using a Javascript enabled browser, you'll be able to expand and collapse directories in-place by clicking on the arrow head at the right side of a directory. Alternatively, the [trac:TracKeys keyboard] can also be used for this:
    30  - use `j` and `k` to select the next or previous entry, starting with the first
    31  - `o` ('''o'''pen) to toggle between expanded and collapsed state of the selected
    32    directory or for visiting the selected file
    33  - `v` ('''v'''iew, '''v'''isit) and `<Enter>`, same as above
    34  - `r` can be used to force the '''r'''eload of an already expanded directory
    35  - `a` can be used to directly visit a file in '''a'''nnotate (blame) mode
    36  - `l` to view the '''l'''og for the selected entry
    37 If no row has been selected using `j` or `k` these keys will operate on the entry under the mouse.
     29If you're using a Javascript enabled browser, you'll be able to expand and collapse directories in-place by clicking on the arrow head at the right side of a directory. Alternatively, the [TracAccessibility#TracBrowserAccessKeys keyboard shortcuts] can be used.

    3931For the Subversion backend, some advanced additional features are available:
    40  - The `svn:needs-lock` property will be displayed.
    41  - Support for the `svn:mergeinfo` property showing the merged and eligible information.
    42  - Support for browsing the `svn:externals` property, which can be [TracIni#svn:externals-section configured].
    43  - The `svn:mime-type` property is used to select the syntax highlighter for rendering the file. For example, setting `svn:mime-type` to `text/html` will ensure the file is highlighted as HTML, regardless of the file extension. It also allows selecting the character encoding used in the file content. For example, if the file content is encoded in UTF-8, set `svn:mime-type` to `text/html;charset=utf-8`. The `charset=` specification overrides the default encoding defined in the `default_charset` option of the `[trac]` section of [TracIni#trac-section trac.ini].
     32 - The `svn:needs-lock` property is shown.
     33 - The `svn:mergeinfo` property shows eligible and merged revisions.
     34 - The `svn:externals` property can be [TracIni#svn:externals-section configured] to display a link to an external repository.
     35 - The `svn:mime-type` property is used to select the syntax highlighter for rendering the file. For example, setting `svn:mime-type` to `text/html` will ensure the file is highlighted as HTML, regardless of the file extension. It also allows selecting the character encoding used in the file content. For example, if the file content is encoded in UTF-8, set `svn:mime-type` to `text/html;charset=utf-8`. The `charset=` specification overrides the default encoding defined in the [TracIni#trac-default_charset-option "[trac] default_charset"] option.

    4537MMM: I found this section a bit hard to understand. I changed the first item as I understood that well.
