Close. :-) That link can use HTML from old site (doesn't need to be in GitHub), and wiki pages.

As Eric pointed out, that diff can show a lot of extra info.

If page before revision and after revision is in GitHub, can just use that.

So in some cases, doing it in a word processing file might even be better. For example, the Word diffs from Laura/Nic and Vicki were useful.

You can copy the main content from the existing page on the WAI website and create a word file. Then copy the text from the revised page and create a word file. Then do a comparison (Review > Compare > Compare) to get a diff version. That's what I did with the Contacting Orgs page attached. :-)

Best,
~Shawn
