Then you've chosen the wrong tool. The repo-browser is a repository
browser, not a file viewer.

I can think of three things you can do.

1. Continue using TSVN, navigate to the URL that contains the file you
want to look at, right-click on that file, select "Open with..." and
proceed to select whatever viewer gives you the warm fuzzies.

2. Set up an Apache server to act as the layer between your client and
Subversion. This method with give you the exact behaviour you desire.

3. Use the Subversion command line client with the "cat" subcommand.
