Description Timwi 2004-09-03 03:07:20 UTC

When adding the leading space for preformatted text, 
the diff will attempt to highlight the new space in red, 
which has no visible effect.

Comment 2 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-06-28 03:43:32 UTC
This can be fixed with

.diffchange { text-decoration: underline; }


.diffchange { background-color: something other than default; }


td.diff-addedline, td.diff-deletedline, td.diff-context {
    white-space: pre-wrap;
    white-space: -moz-pre-wrap;

The latter point (which is a necessary component) will only work on some
browsers, however, such as Opera and Gecko-based browsers.  For a universal fix,
spaces would have to be converted automatically to  .  A stylesheet
solution packaged in by default would be better than nothing, though, in my
opinion, and next-gen browsers will hopefully all support pre-wrap (although IE
7 doesn't yet, at least).
