TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
My favorite [and free] tool tool for any type of side-by-side content
comparison is, NotePad ++ with the "Compare" plug-in. Unfortunately, it can
only compare HTML code, not the rendered content.
If that is okay but you don't want to install NotePad ++, there is also
this excellent and free web compare tool: http://www.diffnow.com
If you need to compared the rendered HTML content, that one seems to be a
little bit more difficult. I found one application (that seems a little
dated) called, HTML match (http://www.htmlmatch.com/)
I'll keep looking for alternatives to visually compare HTML content.
