And indeed to the two sentences immediately following the diagram:
" Note that mount was invoked from the Windows command shell in the
previous example. In many Unix shells, including bash, it is legal and
convenient to use the forward "/" in Win32 pathnames since the "\" is the
shell's escape character. "
I don't think it's appropriate to try and understand documentation by only
looking at the examples and ignoring the surrounding explanatory text....
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
