I am not sure why the conflict occurred, since I don't know the
history of your repository. Presumably you made a property change to
app.css in your working copy, and before you were able to commit it,
you updated from the repository, where someone else made a different
property change to it. But if app.css is a cascading stylesheet, then
you don't need the executable bit set on it, so I would delete that
property with "svn propdel svn:executable app.css" and then tell
Subversion you resolved the conflict with "svn resolved app.css".
