The compare Side by Side feature in Excel 2003 is misleading. I'm attempting
to compare 2 XLS workbooks using the compare Side by Side but it does not
highlight the diffs.

Unless I'm overlooking an enable step, this is misleading to end users and
shouldn't even be labled Compare Side by Side, but more like "Open docs Side
by Side", sicne the end user has to visually determine the diffs themselves
without assistance from Excel.

3rd party apps also display diffs in binary, so not very useful.
