Hi Russ/ All,
       Thanks for the immediate help. That was really helpful.

However, there is still one query in my mind; as it says that copying
the Mac file to a PC results in the loss of the resoource fork. But we
haven't checked out the file on a PC. We've just checked-in the .htm
file with the correct info through MacCVS client into CVS (running on
Suse Linux) and later checking-out the same file on the same Mac changes
it's Creator / TYPE fields. Is  the PC interface that you specified,
specifically the Windows platform (which in this case does not come in
the picture), or is it any machine other than a MAC machine?

It doesn't matter where you check it out to.  The MAC setting is per

More to the point: CVS does not capture any kind of OS-specific information. Creator and Type fields (fields in general, actually) are specific to Mac computers, and have no meaning on other platforms.

I suppose it might be possible to extend CVS to capture OS-specific metadata, but that would be a fairly significant development effort.
