TortoiseSVN is showing you a diff in metadata properties on the two files,
not in the file content itself. Right click on a file in Windows Explorer
and choose "TortoiseSVN > Properties" (near the bottom of the submenu) to
 see what properties a given file has in svn. (Or do an "svn proplist
filename" in a command prompt...)

The svn:keywords property is used with "$Id: blah-blah" keyword references
in the file itself to do keyword substitution at commit time.
