The current debug display mode is not very intuitive:
  • Newlines and spaces are not shown, making it impossible to spot differences in whitespace
  • There is are noisy lines showing type l, u, c, +, -, which is meaningless for non-programmers


  • Show newlines and whitespace, effectively getting a true raw view display using fixed font
  • Reformat diff table to show +/- at left to show what has been added/removed
