	Paul's Simple Diff Algorithm v 0.1

	This code is intended for learning purposes; it was written with short
	code taking priority over performance. It could be used in a practical
	application, but there are a few ways it could be optimized.
	
	Given two arrays, the function diff will return an array of the changes.
	I won't describe the format of the array, but it will be obvious
	if you use print_r() on the result of a diff on some test data.
	
	htmlDiff is a wrapper for the diff command, it takes two strings and
	returns the differences in HTML. The tags used are <ins> and <del>,
	which can easily be styled with CSS.
