fix
The Compare and Differentiate options are for analysis of a single GPO with multiple versions.  To demonstrate these options, select one GPO in the GPA Repository and check it out.  Make a minor change (setting the maximum size of an event log is a good example), and then checks it back in to the Repository.  Once complete, select View History for that GPO.  Of the line items listed in the history, there will be two different version numbers of the same GPO.  Multi-select the Check-in line items with different version numbers to enable the Compare and Differentiate options.  Any differences will be displayed in red text in the results window after clicking the desired button.
