When you import or add files, subversion tries to detect if it is a binary
or text file. It uses an heuristic to do that. If you know your file is a
text file, you can just remove the svn:mime-type property. For svn diff,
you can use --force to force a comparison even if the file is marked as

So, why was your file marked as binary in the first place? I don't know,
but one reaosn might be that it uses the UTF16 encoding. If that's the
case, diff and merge will not work. If possible, use an encoding with
ASCII as a subset, such as UTF8.
