Hi Guys,
I need to implement a word by word comparison for two given XML files and highlight the differences in tersn of spelling, CASE, inserted/missing/substituted words etc... I am supposed to build my algorithm on the lines of the CDIFF algo written in GNU package.
I came across this site ELTAXML which does a similar thing but I am more inclined to build it myself.. or atleast use free source code...

Could anybody please give me any ideas on any open source stuff/sites that does similar things whbich I can easily customize to my requirements... or any ideas for building it myself.. any algos I can use.. etc...
My XML files wil be around 1 MB in size with just three or four tags.. so the chunks of data between two tags will be quite large... so i will need to implement a quite efficient system..

Waiting eagerly for your ideas....
Thanks,
Abhi

Just a guess here.
I think his point was to go use google and come back with any specific questions. He found a lot of stuff that you could be reading to "become wiser."
