* etc/tutorials/TUTORIAL: Mention electric behavior of RET.

Note that I had to change "\" to `\', because otherwise Emacs thought
that everything after that point was inside a string and so did not
indent anything.

So translators should check for anything similar in their translated

The <Return> key is special, in that pressing it may do more than
just insert a Newline character. Depending on the surrounding text,
it may insert whitespace after the Newline character, so that when
you start typing on the newly created line, the text lines up with
that on the previous line. We call this behavior (where pressing a
key does more than simply inserting the relevant character) "electric".

You should see that after inserting the Newline, Emacs inserts spaces
so that the cursor moves under the "T" of "Type".
Remember that most Emacs commands can be given a repeat count;
this includes text characters. Repeating a text character inserts
it several times.
