htmldiff doesn't care about section elements.  But it also doesn't know 
how to deal with the pre-generated data.  Generate the HTML (or XHTML) 
output and then diff the output.  Or.... use the in-built htmldiff 
support in respec.  It can generate the html and then compare that 
output with a static html version.

> It looks like you're trying to diff a ReSpec document with the output from running ReSpec, is that on purpose? There's going to be a big difference between the two, but it'll tell you a *lot* more about what ReSpec does than about actual changes in the document since March. I don't know htmldiff, but is it quite possible that it doesn't like<section>  elements?
