And in general, since this is the tortoise group not svn(?!), in
tortoise if you specify to a diff utility that can do any file format
(eg beyond compare), then it should work for any files regardless of
content-type (assuming you configure your diff utility properly, eg
beyond compare can be configured to ask you what type of "viewer" to use
for the diff so you can choose at the last second regardless of content
type).

Set the svn:content-type property to a value that maps to plain text.
build.xml should probably be text/xml, while build.properties is
probably pure ASCII text and can be text/plain.
