Does anyone know an easy-to-use Text Comparison Utility? I just want to compare 2 test files (like TXT's or HTML's) to see what the differences are.

Awesome, downloading it now. Is there a MAC version? (We use both here). Or maybe I should re-post here to the Mac group.

For simple for comparisons, use a command prompt and try:

comp file1.txt file2.txt.

The output shows the differences and line numbers... I believe.
