presents inserted and deleted text in line and formatting changes in balloons. Notice the
changed line in the left margin, which specifies that the text next to the line has been
modified in some way. For more information about configuring changed lines, see the section
titled “Customizing the Appearance of Changed Lines,” on page 680.
