Its hard to produce a diff between 1.1 full and 1.2 tiny given the
markup is different and that the wording has been altered in some places
to make it clearer.

The old (profile) 1.2 spec had color coding for elements in 1.2 tiny
that were not in 1.1 tiny. We could look at doing element and attribute
indexes that were similarly coded (new compared to Tiny 1.1, and new
compared to Full 1.1)
