Cross-OS SVN working copy compatibility issues

Using a network share, multiple different users, work on a single
checked out location. Some of the users, have Macs, others have PCs.
(We do web development, and setting up individual environments is too
difficult/expensive, and not an option). So my question is - is it
possible for multiple users, using different clients on different OSs,
all work within the same working directory? (All client side SVN
clients are using the same version of SVN) Is there compatibility
issues between clients that I need to worry about? I've seen
documentation claiming that using multiple clients on the same OS
works fine, but I'm curious specifically on Cross-OS support. In
other words, are the ".svn" folders/files created by the svn client
compatible across different OS's?

NOTE: I'm fully aware of the downsides of such an approach, and have
chosen this implementation for a reason.
