In diff displays, it is sometimes hard to find the altered text in the article or edit page. This is particularly true for small edits to large tables or complex references. Blocks of text in diffs are always preceded by a line number. It would be helpful if that line number was a live link that took you to the place in the text where the changed block occurs, perhaps highlighting the first few words of the text in the diff block.
It might be a good idea to provide links between the diff section and the
content on the diff result page. This would save time to follow the changes.
Main reason is to quickly follow the implication of the changes in general and
the change to parameter values in particular.

Note: This should be done only if the content is displayed on the diff view, which is configurable in preferences with the diffonly option, or using ?diffonly=0 in the URL
Such a feature is available e.g. in GitHub and gitblit diffs. (Which also load the anchor in question on double click, though; that should be a separate task.) [please provide an example link to test this feature on GitHub]
