HTML Diff is a simple Python program that uses Python's difflib to highlight changes in HTML documents (specifically it doesn't break up HTML tags, does a word-by-word highlight, and outputs changes in HTML). HTML Diff is available for use in your own application. It's used in:
- NetNewsWire, to highlight changed news stories
- Dive into accountability (used for Winer Watcher), to highlight weblog revisions
