A hierarchical document comparison system comprises a document server computer remotely accessible by a user computer. The document server computer includes a database which stores the contents of a first document and a second document. The first document contains one or more segments and the second document contains one or more segments. Each segment is identified by a segment identifier. The document server computer also includes a module executable in the document server computer. The module is configured to receive a request to compare the first document and the second document. The module compares the first document and the second document and identifies the segments in the documents containing differences. The module then displays on the user computer a side-by-side display listing the segment identifiers for the identified segments. The segment identifiers for the identified segments in the first document containing differences are displayed in a first list and the segment identifiers for the identified segments in the second document containing differences are displayed in a second list.
