You can mark those revisions as "dead". It would be something like:

$ cvs admin -s dead:1.11 install-tpf.html
$ cvs admin -s dead:1.12 install-tpf.html
$ cvs admin -s dead:1.13 install-tpf.html

That should do the trick. When using 'cvs admin', it isn't a bad idea to
make a backup of the ,v file just in case; a little flub-fingering can
really mess up the file.

(of course, I happen to know a version control system that doesn't allow
 people to move ,v files straight out of the Attic ... :-)
