It means that curses are resisted by the highest, most applicable ability - A curse of Blindness might be resisted by "Good Eyesight" or by "Resist evil Sorcerous Magic", which ever is higher and most applicable, just like any other magic.

"Enhancements" is a term that includes Augmentations (bonus to Ability rating), Edges, and AP lending (see HW 133). Appropriate need not produce an Augment, but an edge or even AP lending (eg Healing).
