Description Ulrike Mauritz 2006-07-18 12:44:13 UTC
Compare versions tool does not work properly,it shows lines which are marked as 
modify/new though they are the same (Example here German page for Alberto Gilardino - 
part see below) - each row is a separate line which will be compared - as you can 
see '''Stationen (Spiele/Tore):''' is correct; the following lines are not modified as 
well but marked as modify/new. Is that any possibility that it can work correctly?

 '''Stationen (Spiele/Tore):'''             '''Stationen (Spiele/Tore):''' 
- *1999/2000 Piacenza Serie A 17/3            + *1999/2000 Piacenza Serie A 17/3  
- *2000/2001 Verona Serie A 22/3              + *2000/2001 Verona Serie A 22/3  
- *2001/2002 Verona Serie A 17/2              + *2001/2002 Verona Serie A 17/2  
- *2002/2003 Parma Serie A 24/4               + *2002/2003 Parma Serie A 24/4  
- *2003/2004 Parma Serie A 34/23              + *2003/2004 Parma Serie A 34/23  
- *2004/2005 Parma Serie A 38/23              + *2004/2005 Parma Serie A 38/23

Check very carefully to see if there has been a change in white-space.

This would trigger the DIFF, so the line would be highlighted, but not be visible 
as such since the changed characters are not highlighted themselves.

Please provide a link to the exact diff (e.g.,
 Whitespace is often a confusing factor; see bug 286.

I will close this bug. Please reopen it when you can provide link to the exact diff.
