I have the same problem with svn 1.1.3 and win2ksp4. I would like to
diff two UTF-8 encoded files and to get an UTF-8 diff output.

It seems that the internal diff treats the input files as raw text and
the diff output contains scrambled characters in place of extended UTF
characters.

I am under the feeling I am missing something basic. Does the diff
command actually support UTF-8 encoded files?

If so, how does Subversion determine which encoding is used?

I searched the book and the list archive with no success. I found
"--encoding" options for the log messages encoding and a "svn:eol-style"
property for end-of-line preferences.

Any help very welcome! Thanks
