I posted about that just days ago; the archive should hold the message by now.

There's an algorithm to estimate whether files are binary or texty:

Check the first 1024 bytes to be within the 020-0x7F and 0x07-0x0D
regions. If more than 85% of the bytes fall in that region (and none
were 0x00), then the file is probably texty.

So, if your files don't have that property, Subversion will consider
them binary, until you set a mime-type which makes it look texty
(starting with text/)
