dumb question about deleting files

If, as a project moves forward, you find yourself no longer needing
certain files and you delete them locally, then when you do a commit,
they show up as missing and clutter up the list of files when I go to
do commits (I use TortoiseSVN).

I guess they're still in the repo... I accidentally did an update
(TortoiseSVN's Update cmd is on the menu next to the Commit cmd), so
this restored the deleted files back on my local drive. This caused a
small mess that I had to cleanup, so now I think I should delete them
from the repo to avoid this in the future, right?

But, here's my question... If I delete them from the repo, if I ever
want to roll back to a previous version that used the deleted files,
are they still there as part of the image of older checkins? Or will
deleting them screw up going back?

This seems like it should be straightforward, but it's confusing to me
and I don't want to screw things up by trying to actually do the
delete and see what happens... so, please excuse the question prior to
taking the "try it and find out" approach.
