In the past two processes have been used:

(a) XSLT-based, derived from markup manually added by editors as the changes
are made

(b) XSLT-based, derived from differencing at the XML level

This time, largely because of changes in personnel, a different process was
used, based on HTML differencing.

I have a diff'ed version of the F+O spec made using process (a) and it is
vastly better than the one that has been published, largely because it
differentiates substantive changes from mere editorial rearrangement. I'm
going to try and make it available.
