And why does the diff tool do that?

One reason is differing line endings. If so, then convert the one
version of the document to the same line ending style as the other
version and compare again.

Or you can use the "ignore whitespace" option to diff.

If your files differ on every line for a reason other than
whitespace, please explain.
