    PLEASE checkin binary files with -kb option or admin them as such.
    On Unix and similar environments it will make no difference on checkout,
    but makes a huge difference on Windows and the like that do EOL conversion.
    I did a cvs co of some of the files on a Linux computer and I see my
    problem is that the files aren't marked appropriately. This problem
    exists in several modules, not just wv. If possible, please check
    documentation in as .abw instead of .zabw, as the former is text and
    the latter is binary, hence no cvs diff is possible.

    Thank you,
