        Subject: Comparing blocks of texts!

Dear Willard,

The Unix diff command (http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2010/06/linux-file-diff-utilities/) will provide some help with comparing blocks of text. However, if the person is a a Mac user there is a wonderful piece of software called Kaleidoscope from Black Pixel (http://blackpixel.com/apps.html) that is excellent for comparing texts visually. I use it all the time :)

Best, John.
