I don't think Subversion can currently see UTF-16 files as text files.

Someone filed an issue about this in January:

http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2194

The issue was marked invalid because no discussion had taken place.
So a discussion was started:

http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2005-01/0233.shtml

The result of the discussion was that the issue should be reopened
and marked as a feature request to support UTF-16 and UTF-32, but
nobody appears to have done so.
