Subversion Unicode Support

Hi all,

After trying some things, I wonder what level of UNICODE support
subversion has or is supposed to have.

What do I need to do to check in UNICODE text files (which encoding is
supported), so that subversion still treats them as text files, doing
all sorts of diff and CR/LF conversion?

Adding a UTF-16 file (with/without BOM) adds it as binary (mime-type:
applcation/octet-stream). svn diff is not possible. Changing the
mime-type to text/plain allows a diff, but the output is not displayed
with the correct encoding.

Am I doing something wrong, or does svn not support unicode textfiles at
