WebSVN does not know about the contents of files in the repository period. 
As it is just a frontend to svn, you cannot expect it to know about every 
weird file format and encoding around.
IMO, the main purpose of websvn is to be able to view diffs in _code_ and 
maybe download individual files.
For everything else, use svn itself and work with its files in their 
proper environment.

If you really want to file a bug about it, the Tech Support Tracking 
System for project alioth on alioth is probably your best bet, but I 
doubt that is really useful.

Maybe, maybe not. Depends what part of the world you're from.
Food for endless flames^Wdiscussions.
