What did you do?
1. Edited a page
2. Browser crashed
3. Resurrected page from draft
4. Saved page
5. Got presented with page suggesting someone else had been editing it at the same time (someone else was probably me)
6. Flailed around trying to correct this with no sucess.

What happened?
- "Your Changes" and "Current Revision" labels are stacked vertically instead of appearing over the content in the comparison. The labels in the comparison were different so I had to compare numbers to figure out which was which.
- I could not copying the text from the comparison into the editor brought a lot of extra formatting.
- Saving the page did not seem to resolve the problem.
- When saving the page did not solve the problem I ran out of ideas as to how to fix it.

What should have happened?
Should have been able to quickly identify the differences, copy the appropriate information to combine the two version and save the finished version I wanted to keep.

Is there anything else we should know?
