Summary: In history diffs, distinguish between preexisting and
new text, via a search+comparison function
Component: Special pages
For example, in the diff:
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.
