Thanks for the patches, I've taken a quick look and they look fine. I'll look
more soon and will incorporate the patches in the next version.

Let me know if you get the ignore feature integrated with HTML::Diff,
I've taken a look at it once and couldn't find a way to do it, and I
feel that the ignore feature is important for the uses of Web Secretary.

If the HTML::Diff can do proper diffing and ignore we can ditch webdiff.
