Summary: dummy cells (containing  ) in table.diff lack
                    identifying CSS class

this is related to bug 25697.

i found when viewing multi-paragraph diffs such as the wall of text seen in the
above screen-shot it may be helpful to select adjacent paragraphs with the
cursor to copy and paste specific excerpts to another medium, if not for all
textual formatting junk between each pair of lines.

setting the following css put me about halfway there. looks sweet without all
the +/−:
> .diff-marker { visibility:hidden; }

(note, "display:none;" didn't work so well because these cells have no analogue
in the header rows and having them disappear completely causes awful cell
malignment issues.)

unfortunately there's no easy/reliable way to get rid of the spaces in the
specified by:
> <td colspan="2">&nbsp;</td>

due to the lack of an identifying css class. perhaps we can call this element
another type of .diff-marker, or make up an appropriate name for it.

(actually this would be even more useful when previewing template subst output
in the "show changes" (wpDiff) view, in cases where i'm trying to copy multiple
lines of the previewed output for discussion's sake or to build a related
template, again without all the arithmetic signs, dimension-forcing dummy
and other non-content junk.)
