When determining whether to display or download a file, your web browser
looks at its MIME type as reported by the server in the "Content-Type"
HTTP header. Assuming you're using Apache as your server, you can modify
Apache's config to send different MIME types for different files, and/or
use the "svn:mime-type" property
individual files to tell Apache how to set the Content-Type header.
However, setting these to a non-text setting will cause Subversion to
treat these files as binary, which probably isn't what you want. I would
definitely look into having Apache override the MIME types for the
specific locations you're interested in.
