It is very hard to tell what Quintin changed here. He actually added a link. It would be nice if it were possible to switch to a mode in which a diff of the Markdown source is shown.

I'd say we could go even a step further and only display the diff in markdown.

In addition to the fact that the improved diff engine now shows the change correctly in the standard view, the revision list now also offers both a side-by-side HTML diff and a diff of the Markdown source, so this is doubly .

Why not display a green +, a red - or a blue x on the left of the rendering to indicate this line has been added, deleted or modified, respectively? And on hovering the blue x, the change's source is shown.
