looking for a few good ideas

  amongst the irregular verbiage

DiffMerge

DiffMerge is a tool recently made freely available from SourceGear. If you are not a programmer then you probably have no need of this, but if you do find yourself needing to compare two different versions of source files, then I recommend this tool

I used WinMerge for a while, but the other day I needed to do the file comparison thing and I found that on my laptop, not only had I not installed WinMerge, I didn't have an installer conveniently located in my c:\downloads folder either.

Since I regularly read Eric Sink's Blog, I knew about DiffMerge, and so I gave it a try.

It's excellent. It blows WinMerge out of the water. Recommended.
