Not easily.

For the web UI, we have some html diff code, that does this.

But we do not send HTML emails.

BUT, there is a link to that html diff view inside the text email, you
just need to click on it.

Also, some people dislike HTML emails or maybe even can handle the
coloured stuff worse than the "techie" diff stuff.

So we would need another user setting for this preference?
Or send multipart email with text AND html?

Considering that moin 1.9.x is stable, I only see room for rather small
changes / contributions, but you can help to make moin2 better by
helping to think about such stuff (on a rather detailled level) and/or
contribute some code that implements it.
