Re: Word Docs

But it is very important to understand that it is diffing
file-content, not document content. Being a binary file, changing
only a few characters could change the entire file. Consider that
changing a single bit can have flow-on effects in a compressed-stream
or encrypted-stream.

Though you'll get cheaper binaries in many cases with subversion it's
going to do a lot better with types that represent localised
differences in document-content with localised differences in
file-content.

a syntax-directed diffing mechanism would allow potentially
significant gains but introduce an extreme cost in complexity that the
majority of the Subversion user base wouldn't gain much benefit from.
