* "That'd be cool if it worked, but at least in my case, it doesn't" --It works if you put line numbers at the beginning of each line--then it highlights the diff per line in both buffers/in both files--you do "Mx ediff-buffers" on--I know it works if you do--I tested it before I posted. I usually use "nl" (UNIX) to do this (quoting myself):
nl sanskrit-song.txt > sanskrit-song_line-numbers-at-front.txt

* Also, Thanks Nick for the pointing to notes on how to translate the english/roman script etc. and the updating of views related to this thread:

"updated a thread on gnu.emacs.help with those

"That'd be cool if it worked, but at least in my case, it doesn't:
diff decides there is one big diff that covers the whole file,
and ediff does not find a "better" refinement: no "n"
to follow the bouncing ball...
