That type of tools help comparing XML trees, but not CDATA.

CDATA (the actual output text) will be different in translated books, except 
for the ones inside {screen}{userinput} blocks  and the 
{packages,patches}.ent files, that must be identical.

To compare {packages,patches}.ent is easy, but to have a clean diff of 
{screen}{userinput} blocks some way of stracting that info from the book is 
needed. We could to use the ugly and unmantained dump-commands.xsl stylesheet 
supplied with the book sources (plus diffing packages.ent, due that packages 
versions aren't resolved by that) , to develop a new approach, to see if same 
translators-helper program can do the work (I don't use they, then I don't 
know), or to use jhalfs.
