LDiff shows the differences between two documents. It is intended primarily for legislative documents (e.g. amended bills and regulations, updated compilations or codes).
Try it out here. The initial demo shows two versions of a U.S. House bill. The first two tabs show the two bills, HR766 as 'introduced' in the House, and HR766 as 'reported' in the House. The third tab shows the differences between the two bills and the fourth tab shows the differences in the underlying XML of the bill documents. Replace these samples to compare your own documents.
There are three ways to upload documents to compare:
Two kinds of comparisons are shown, 'Structural' comparisons, which retain the xml structure of the documents, and display the comparison in html. This does not compare structural or styling elements, but strips them before comparing the text, and then attempts to restore the structure to the final document. As a result, this 'structural' comparison may not accurately show changes in the underlying elements. For example, comparing
this is <bold>bold</bold> to
this is <italic>italic</italic> will show the changed word in both bold and italic. By contrast, the Text comparison compares all input as plain text.
