Linking these as MIME type text/html looks better in my browser (Safari):

for 10.3.1.4:
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/db/derby/code/branches/10.3/RELEASE-NOTES.html?revision=561793&content-type=text%2Fhtml
for 10.3.2.1:
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/db/derby/code/branches/10.3/RELEASE-NOTES.html?revision=599095&content-type=text%2Fhtml
