Filemerge uses a grey background to show which lines have
changed, and blue characters to show which characters have
changed in those lines. This works fairly well unless the
characters which have changed are blanks, tabs, or something
else which isn't going to be displayed.

(you can set which color to use for showing the changed
characters, but it defaults to blue. You can also turn
that feature off if you want)
