Subversion never changes the contents of files, ever. It treats file
contents as opaque strings of bytes.

The only exception to this is when you explicitly set the svn:eol-
style or svn:keywords properties. These properties give the svn
client permission to change line-endings and expand keywords.

So, if you're not setting those properties, then any encoding
problems you're having are purely outside of Subversion.
