Better support for comparing CJK at ideogram level?

WinMerge assumes that comparisons should be at "word level".

This is less than ideal in Unicode text for Chinese ideograms, where a comparison might be more effective at the level of per ideogram rather than per block of ideograms.

The issue is that the definition of what constitutes a word is not universal, but varies from script to script.

How about providing a user option to highlight differences at the "per character" level?

This would go a long way towards solving this weakness.
