Hi,

Here is what happens in the browser (Firefox 3.6.8). I mean the page
that shows
the file content.

I set svn:mime-type text/plain; charset=windows-1251 on several files.
Also, I entered a commit message with Bulgarian (Cyrillic) text) and
English text
Then I showed one of these committed files in ViewVC.

The page came in UTF-8. The log message showed properly - the Cyrillic text
appeared and was readable. The file content was replaced with ?????????

Then I changed charset in Firefox. The things swapped:
The log message changed and the Cyrillic letters turned to some other
symbols,
not ????????.
The file content appeared and became readable.

I have two screen captures (JPG) each of them of 100k size. If this
mailing list
allows attachments I could attach them in a new mail, please tell me if
this is OK.
