What version are you running?
What's the URL of the page containing the problem?
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Compare UTF8 text files with multibyte characters.
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The highlighting doesn't always select the correct character and the
downloaded diff is not UTF8 - see the .css file for the downloaded diff and
p5diff.txt for the result of "p5 diff -du -c"
Also included a screenshot showing incorrect & correct highlighting. If
there are any multibyte characters before the diff, the diff is offset.
What operating system are you using? What browser?
Mac OSX 10.8.2
