HTML diff view is a bit broken

(Jakob Borg) #1

See the screenshot for a diff on an edit I made. Actually multiple edits, which might be a contributing factor, but combined into one historically (I guess due to being within a five minute window or such).

The meat of the edit is the adding of the last paragraph. But the diff algorithm seems to have latched on to some words in that paragraph that are in the first point in the bulleted list and then kept drawing the wrong conclusions.

The markdown view is more reliable :wink:

Yeah, just switch to Markdown view.

(Jakob Borg) #4

Ok, changing the title.

So in this case, just the last para was added? No other edits/changes? Ironically I can’t tell. Can you post a screenshot of the markdown diff?

(Jakob Borg) #6

Yeah, sorry. :slight_smile: Markdown diff below; the text at the end was added.
