Comparing HTML code

I am looking for a program, hopefully free and online, that will let me put in two versions of html compare them and point out the differences.

Is there such a thing?

Microsoft word will allow you to compare and contrast document content.

To do this:
1. Open one of your docs in word.
2. go to Tools> Track Changes > Compare Documents
(you will now be asked to select another document to compare the changes between the two)

Easy sorta free and very simple.

I hope this helps:-)

Cheers,

This is a good idea however what I am looking for is a program that will show side by side comparisons with the code.


When I used the Word application it showed me the rendered results which is the next best thing.  If no better answer comes you'll get those points.

Thank you for the great suggestion.

I'd like a line of code from 1.html right next to the same line of code on 2.html.

But I'm looking for anything right now.  What do you mean by "diff"?

sanekCommented:
`diff` or, you might prefer `sdiff` are unix commands that take two files and make a basic comparsion of two.
But, from your question I think you use different OS. You may get these for DOS.
Are you trying to compare comletely different files?

Well, in a case two files aren't alike at all, this option is not effective.
As a matter of fact, comparing two very different files seems to be too complicated to be solved by MS-Word either.

I see that it can be used for Windows 98 but can it be used for NT?

And do I have to have Visual Studio?

Thank you for going the extra mile for with this.  I think it works as I needed as you can see the code side by side.  There is something in there about fonts but I don't see what that is for and when I try to change the size nothing happens.  Is there something about font color? From the text file it says this:
Note that the last used font, left and right file, and WinDiff's
screen position are automatically saved by WinDiff itself (there is no
need to change these manually).

The following is an example of windiff.ini:

[windiff]
HighlightColor=255 255 0
LogFont=-13 0 0 0 400 0 0 0 0 3 2 1 34 Arial
ScreenPosition=-1 38 1025 362
LeftFile=WINDIF10.H
LeftFileDir=C:\PROJ\WINDIFF
RightFile=WINDIFF.H
RightFileDir=C:\PROJ\WINDIFF
