Actually, properties can even be images (if you want that). Only the
official svn:* properties are defined to be text in utf8. If you use
custom properties, you can add anything you want.

And that's why the export file format TSVN uses is also binary.

In the properties dialog, you can select properties and click on the
"export" button, which will then save those selected properties as a
binary file with *.svnprops extension.
