I've recently begun to use Beyond Compare: http://www.scootersoftware.com/ It's not free or OSS, though.
There's also a plugin for Notepad++ that does something similar: http://sourceforge.net/projects/npp-compare/ This is free, of course.

Subject: [CODE4LIB] Tool to highlight differences in two files
I would like to compare versions of a website scraped at different times to see what paragraphs on a page have changed. Does anyone here know of a tool for holding two files side by side and noting what is the same and what is different between the files?
It seems like any simple script to note differences in two strings of text would work, but I don't know a tool to use.
