Unicode, auto-props and eol-style

From: Henrik Sundberg <storangen_at_gmail.com>

I have just migrated a large repository from SourceSafe (vss) to Subversion.
auto-props for *.txt is set to svn:mime-type=text/plain;svn:eol-style=native

When checking the migration (i used vss2svn) i found some txt files
that in vss was stored as Little endian unicode (16-bit), DOS (the bom
is fffe) got changed line endings.

A file just containing a line with an A is changed like this (looking
at emacs hexl-mode on windows xp):
vss: fffe 4100 0d00 0a00
svn: fffe 4100 0d0a 000d 0a00

How should auto-props be defined for .txt-files when there are
different encodings in different files?
Should i remove the mime-type and keep the eol-style?
Is it possible to use the eol-style, when mixing unicode files with
ASCII files (I need the files in both Linux and Windows)?

I read about eol-style in
Does this mean that the file is changed before it is committed into
the repository? Is there a way to retrieve the files as they where
before the commit? By removing/changing properties?
