Fixed a typo, shows the entire content on "diff"

I fixed a typo (Postgress) at page "New Developers", and it is showing the entire content on "diff": all red and all green. I was expecting to see only the edited text (Postgress -> Postgres, or really 's' -> ' ') diff'd. To have the entire content highlighted (red/green) is confusing.

The visual diff will not work well on pages with <translate> tags. We could consider turning it off on such pages.

@Chbrandt it shows as entire text but actually only changes you made are done. Rest is all same.
