Here is how I do it from a command line:
cp filename.txt /tmp
svn delete filename.txt
svn commit -m "removing filename.txt"
cp /tmp/filename.txt .

Then edit the file to remove any keyword expansions.

Svn will still have the file in its repository. Nothing is ever really
deleted. It is just no longer present.
