I had to "raw topic view" the two revisions I was interested in and compare them by eye to see certain changes, because the "debug" topic diff view hides some changes. I think this is because the topic text is shown in div blocks, instead of in pre blocks. (Perhaps there is a css way to do this - in which case please enlighten me smile )

I am not entirely sure which component produces the "debug" diff, but the problematic URL is http://my.server/foswiki/bin/rdiff/Web/Topic

As far as I can tell, rdiff is the "core" diff functionality. Since the CompareRevisionsAddOn is a core plugin in 1.1, and it provides a friendlier user-level diff, I think the rdiff output should become more useful for debugging.

I can achieve what I want by changing pub/System/PatternSkin/style.css, line 53, from this:
pre, code, tt {
    font-family: "Bitstream Vera Sans Mono","Andale Mono",Courier,monospace;
    font-size:86%;
}
to this:
pre, code, tt, .foswikiDiffDebug {
    font-family: "Bitstream Vera Sans Mono","Andale Mono",Courier,monospace;
    white-space:pre;
    font-size:86%;
}

I could also put a rule around line 1123, where the rest of the CSS for the rdiff template is. Which is better practice?

I have removed white-space:pre from pre, code, tt because this made code text non-wrapping.
