Thanks! Solved by opening the file in wordpad, which converts all the eol 
characters to the same type.

That indicates that the file has an svn:eol-style set, but when you
edited it you inserted line endings that conflict with what's in the
rest of the file.  If the file has \r\n line endings your changes need
the same thing, if the file has \n line endings, ditto.
