DocumentCompare is an easy-to-use application for comparing text documents.
Even minute changes between two versions of the same text are recognized by DocumentCompare and displayed concisely.
In contrast to similar applications, DocumentCompare is able to preserve text formatting throughout the process of comparing the chosen documents. So-called “formatted text” with different fonts, sizes and styles (e.g. bold or italic) will be preserved unchanged.
This is why you can, for example, use DocumentCompare to find what changed from one version of a web page to another. HTML files and even Safari web archives (.webarchive) can be used as source files.
DocumentCompare is able to handle all files that can be read by Apple’s TextEdit. The files will even look the same, as both programs use Mac OS X’s text engine.

The price seems a little steep at first, but it's worth it. It works well, and the interface is intuitive. It's great for comparing different versions of documents, and I expect it will prove equally useful for code.
