CriticMarkup is a great idea

I love everything about human readable pure text editing markup. Brilliant.

I'm often writing something, then someone gives line edits without tracking changes. I have no idea what they changed or why.

Thanks to your inspiration, I now have a quick and dirty (well, dirty) python script that finds all the changes and adds some critic markup to highlight the changes.

I'm just a hobbyist, so... entirely possible I missed some obviously better way to do this. Still, it was a fun toy to build.


PS - Not sure what category... Problems, Questions, or Suggestions... really just an idle comment.
