Subversion and therefore Subclipse does not do anything with the content
(encoding) of the file. My guess is that Eclipse has something now where
you can specify a default encoding on a local file. Since the remote file
is not local, Eclipse is not applying its default? You can file an issue
in our issue tracker if you like. There is probably some method/interface
we can implement to provide a default encoding. Perhaps we can force
Eclipse to use its default?

It would be great if you could include reference to a publicly accessible
repository where this problem could be seen.
