That is trivial if you use Apache2/WebDAV as server protocol.

Let's assume your repository is https://mydomain.com/svn/site1/trunk

...tell your users to enter just this URL into their browser to have an
online preview. The "GET" request issued by a normal browser is identical
to what subversion issues to get the newest version, so you always see the
newest version of your repository if you look at it with a normal browser
instead of subversion.
