Well, thank goodness. I was about to write to my MP!

Actually, that's exactly what I tried and thought I had described in my  
original post on the matter. But perhaps I wasn't as clear as I could have  

Anyway, I tried the same thing again, and it worked this time. My  
checked-in file from RISC OS gets recogized as a .c file by WebSVN, so  
syntax highlighting works properly, which is great.

Not sure why it didn't work the first time, and I managed to lose the  
stack backtrace somewhere along the way. If it happens again, I'll post  
here in the hope that someone might be able to suggest what exactly the  
problem is.

Thanks again for your time and help - much appreciated.
