	Oh - you want to look at change-tracking; see sw/inc/redline.hxx and
related classes - it is called 'red-lining' in the code (and many other

	For tooltips - all these (English) strings will be in .src files - so
just grep through all the .src files:

$ find -name '*.src'| xargs grep -Hn 'string from the user interface'

	or near Windows equivalent.

	I suggest you edit a file, do some changes, save them as flat odt: ie.
just using .fodt in the (linux at least) file selector should do that
for you. Then seeing what changed.

	ie. save; re-load / do a change, re-save, and diff the former to the
latter document.

	The ODF saving code is in the xmloff/ module AFAIR :-) Please do help
fill out the source description page in the wiki with more details
as/when you discover them :-)
