If the docs are in a recognizable format, you may have some luckwith

Subject: Seeking tool recommendations

Can anyone recommend tools that would flag similar paragraphs in a large
documentation set? The goal is to re-use this content via XML and reduce
the overall word count.

The technical side of re-use isn't the issue; it's finding the redundant
content at a granular level.

Author-IT eXtend appears to show fuzzy content matches as you are typing
new content, but I don't see any way to analyze a bunch of existing
content for duplication.

What I'm looking for is a tool that would analyze the whole doc set and
produce a report of content chunks that are good candidates for re-use.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Craig Haiss
