Well one ugly way this could be done:
1.the edit button for an element is clicked open a new window with the
2. When save is clicked save the edited text
3. run cvs diff -u between the original and edited text
4. mail the results somewhere (to a reviewer or a list)

I know how to do this in php, but I think we should decide if we are
going to use asp.net and just start on that as it hopefully has the same
abilities. If anyone is interested let me know as I would like to help.
