Page comparison

Two pages are considered equal when they contain the same content within the page layout differencing area, and that content is at the same vertical and horizontal position on both pages.

When comparing two pages, TopLeaf looks at sequences of text, rules and graphics within the difference area.

Graphics are considered to be equal if the base filename (that is, the name excluding the folder path) of each graphic is identical. The content of the graphic files is not compared.

Color is not considered when comparing text and rules.

Hyperlink launch and target identifiers are ignored during comparison.
