You need a client and server that communicate using the same protocol.
You're asking a browser that speaks "http" to communicate directly with a
server that speaks "svn." There is a solution: use apache's mod_svn which
serves subversion files via http. It will do exactly what you want: allow
anonymous users to retrieve files from svn using only their browser.
