@Pesto: How to open eyes ? – GEOCHET Nov 4 '09 at 15:38
Thanks, guys, very friendly. Is calculating and highlighting diffs the same thing as citation highlighting or syntax highlighting? Editing peoples questions until they match an answer and then closing them must be fulfilling in ways I can't fathom. – Jim Downing Nov 4 '09 at 15:52
@Jim: You applied 'syntax highlighting' as a tag. There is no code diff utility on SO. Slow down and write understandable questions if you want better answers. – GEOCHET Nov 4 '09 at 15:55
@Jim: Were you referring to the diffs in the revisions list of a particular question? – snicker Nov 4 '09 at 16:50
@snicker Yes, it seems to deal with strikethrough and syntax highlighting of code on the same line, which ends up with clearer and more attractive results than I get from most diff programs. – Jim Downing Nov 10 '09 at 15:40
@Jim, you should revert your question and try and get it reopened. – James McMahon Jan 29 '10 at 14:00

This is just Google prettify.
