RE: 3rd-party merging tools? Recommendations?

I use BeyondCompare 2 (http://www.scootersoftware.com/) for both diff'ing
and merging, especially since you see the two files side by side and then
have ability to manually align (in the case code blocks that have moved
around), copying lines from one side to the other, manually editing lines,
and, of course, saving those changes back to disk.

I like it a lot and strongly recommend it.
