           Summary: In history diffs, distinguish between preexisting and
                    new text, via a search+comparison function
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Special pages
        AssignedTo: wikibugs-l@lists.wikimedia.org
        ReportedBy: stv...@gmail.com


For example, in the diff:
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Undeciphered_writing_systems&diff=375671540&oldid=372821363

The edit separated the second sentence as the start of a new paragraph and
inserted the text, shown at the beginning of the green field, as part of the
first paragraph. The second sentence and after, now a separate paragraph, is
still shown highlighted in green. 

A search/comparison function inserted after the diff is formed which compares
the pre-existing version and the diff output text, could unmark the
pre-existing text from green to a nominal yellow color. This helps to
distinguish text which has added from pre-existing text which has simply been
shifted, moved, or transplanted.
