Column-by-column comparison of the data in two SQL Server 2000 databases

Can anyone give me a SQL script that takes the tables in two databases and compares the data column-by-column to see where the differences are?  I have an application that I want to verify that production database contains exactly the same data as the development database.

I'd be willing to run such a script once per table and input the table name manually; that's no big deal.  The comparison of the values in every row and column is the thing I'm most interested in.
