Comparing a file in two branches

Hi guys,

I'm new to SVN and have downloaded TortoiseSVN 1.5.0. I have a n00b question
- apologies if it's obvious! How can I compare different branches of the
same file, e.g. see what differences there are between
trunk/some/random/file and branches/my_branch/some/random/file? The best
I've found is to use the repo browser to navigate to trunk/some/random and
mark it for comparison, then navigate to branches/my_branch/some/random and
compare the directories, see whether the file is in the list of changed
files at all, and then select it if it is. That's barely usable, so I'm sure
I'm missing something! We're trying to migrate from PVCS, where you would
simply navigate to the file and then select the two revisions.

Thanks in advance,

 - Chris
