Description Carl Fürstenberg 2007-01-15 20:10:41 UTC
When you edit a section, and you get a edit conflict, the resulting page consist
of two edit boxes containing the full pages text. Sometimes it can be difficult
to find the actual spot in that mass of text (especially on a talk page) to fix
the problem, the section you edited might be in the mid of the mess. My proposal
is that if possible, only show the actual sections in the boxes, to keep the
focus in the actual section.
