No. As I said in my first reply, SubWCRev and keywords are completely
separate and have different functions.

The documentation for keywords is here:
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.2/svn.advanced.props.html#svn.advanced.props.special.keywords

For each file that you want keywords to be used in you have to set the
property svn:keywords to include the specific keywords you want to be
expanded.

TortoiseSVN->properties->add
Select svn:keywords
Add property names (case-sensitive) on-per-line in the 'value' box. eg.
Date
Revision

In your document (assuming it is a plain text document) include
$Revision$ in the text.

Commit the changes.

The keywords in your doc will be expanded to show the last commit
revision of the file as it exists in your working copy
