While browsing a repository in a web browser it quickly becomes appearent that the default styling is a bit bland. Fortunately we can style the repository listing up by using "SVNIndexXSLT".

SVNIndexXSLT allows us to call a xsl transformation on the repository listing to apply css styling. This file and its associated files (ie css) must exist in outside of the repositories path. I put them in the root htdocs of, but they can as easily be in "/htdocs/svnstyles/".

You can find an example of svnindex.xsl in the "/tools/xslt" directory of the subversion download.

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "/htdocs"
<Location "/snv">
Dav svn
SVNListParentPath on
SVNParentPath "/svn/"
SVNIndexXSLT "/htdocs/svnindex.xsl"

Now when you browse your repositories you should see some nice styling.
