It sounds like you need to turn off the revision marks. It's under the menu
item Tools/Revisions. It's faithfully letting you know that you've changed a
paragraph by zapping it.

Righty-oh. You might want to drop the includetext field and go to master
document. It's not bulletproof either, but it's pretty reliable up to a
couple of hundred pages or so. Or, if the docs are short enough, just import
'em all into one doc. The resulting file is bigger but changes are much
easier to do.
