How does Editing work in Stack Overflow?

How do I view the changes made to a question, in the SO-style visual diff?

I'm sure I've seen this before, but the "history" button eludes me. Clicking "edit" gives me a drop down of the revisions, but not the actual diff.


Edit

This edit is a demonstration of the revision history functionality.

Click the part that says edited [some time] ago under your question. That brings you to the revision page for this question. I have edited your question as a demonstration.

JavaScript bookmarklet

You can also install yourself this little bookmarklet to view the revision history of a question:

javascript:window.location.href=window.location.href.replace(/questions\/(\d+)\/.*$/,"posts/$1/revisions");

URL format

In general, for any post (question or answer), grab the ID and swap it out in the following format:

http://stackoverflow.com/posts/{postID}/revisions
