If you are working with Unicode / UTF-8 and UTF-16 files on Mac and Windows you may want to try CVSNT (it's free, GPL just like CVS) it understands unicode as a "diffable" format. (I think it's -ku).
You can download it from and ask questions on the mailing list:
CVSNT is the default client for WinCVS (it usually comes bundled with it).  Alternatively you can download CVSNT client/server for Mac OS X from the Apple site:

I have a .xsl (text) file which had few revisions (added with wincvs) with UTF-8 encoding-format. Now when I have converted that file  to UTF-16 encoding with XML spy editor - this file is getting corrupt after adding the same - specially in windows only - in Mac its fine..

Changing the filetype to *binary* is the imm. workaround - but with it I wont be able to get diffs of it.

I am using WinCVS as a client and CVS 1.11.17.
Any other area where we can look-into to check / resolve this ....
