You should check what this comment means and try and follow it. See:
http://learn.to/quote

More information on your set-up would be useful. I'm assuming that
since you are on the tortoise list that you are using TortoiseSVN as your
client for subversion. Is your working copy on Windows or unix? What
file sharing are you using? If its Samba the make sure you read the faq
section http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/faq.html#samba
 Setting the property eol-style=native will give you CRLF line endings
using a TortoiseSVN client (native means native to the client software,
not the destination filesystem). Setting the eol-style=LF property on the
files will fix this.
 If you are using the command line client from the unix side then the files
you are having problems with either have the eol-style set, or they are
being interpreted as binary and not having any transformation done. In
which case they will be the same as when they were put in. Setting the
mime-type property should force these files the way you want then. See
the section "file content type" in the svn-book.
