I've used the changebars.xsl stylesheet (in the standard stylesheet
distro) in combination with Norm Walsh's "diffmk" utility:


...which generates a doc that shows deletes in strike-through, added
text in one color, changed text in another. It's very easy to use,
two-step process:
  1. Run "diffmk -docytpe docbook <old.xml> <new.xml> <diffs.xml>"
  2. Run XSLT engine on diffs.xml w/ changebars.xsl to get diffs.html
