Firefox decides how to handle pages served to it based on the
content-type HTTP header, whereas IE usually guesses based on the
filename extension.

Set the svn:mime-type property to text/html on these HTML files and
all will be well. This is a good habit to get into anyway - I try to
mark every file I can in my repositories with the appropriate
mime-type. It's extra metadata that costs almost nothing but can be
valuable down the line.
