Cross-Platform Character Encoding Issues

From: Gustave T. Stresen-Reuter <tedmasterweb_at_mac.com>

We have a multi-platform development environment (windows, mac os x,
linux). On Windows and Linux we use JEdit as the editor and on the Mac
we use BBEdit.

We're finding that we have a couple of character encoding issues and
don't know how to solve them.

Specifically, documents checked into Subversion from the Mac (encoded
in utf-8 No BOM) and then checked out onto Windows end up incorrectly
encoded (accented characters display incorrectly). Likewise, documents
created on the windows machines, checked into Subversion and then
checked out onto the Mac end up with "gremlins" (characters that don't
display but are definitely a part of the document).

I've read in several places that documents checked into Subversion are
converted to utf-8, but if that were true, why would we end up with
this mis-encoded documents? Is it possible that JEdit or some other
aspect of Windows is messing with the encoding and if so, what could it
possibly be?

This is somewhat urgent so any help resolving this issue is greatly
