"Wdiff, however, had a significant advantage over Word in that it was able to be automated pretty easily (I used Python). I wrote some scripts to compare specific clauses. That is, compare clause x of agreement 1 against clause y of agreement 2, output the results in html markup (see note 1) and join them together. The results were fantastic. Following this strategy, with clause by clause comparison wdiff didn't get confused and produced a very good markup of the whole of each of the documents. The downside was that it was not fully automated, but the results justified the comparatively small amount of manual input I needed to make."
