How to move changes from dev to live in svn

The recent discussion of the lack of CVS-like tags made me realize
that I actually depend on those quite a bit right now. I am not
looking to reopen the discussion of whether svn should have "real"
tags or not; that is obviously pointless. What I do want to know is
what the "svn way" of doing this would be:

I build websites, and constantly need to move changes from the dev
site to the live site. The current way of doing it goes like this:
When the changes are ready to go, I tag them with "stable". Then I
pop over to the live site, which was checked out on the "stable" tag
when it was first set up, and do a cvs update. This grabs the
changes I tagged and nothing more. Note that this is not necessarily
everything that has been committed; I might commit 10 files but only
tag 3 of them as stable. I think this is going to be a significant
area of difference, given svn's atomic commits.

Any suggestions on how to accomplish something similar in
Subversion? I did look over the book at red-bean.com but if the
answer is there I missed it.

Thanks in advance,
