Retrieve markup of old versions of a page

How can I retrieve the markup of old versions of a page.

I know how to display the formatted content of old versions and I know how to compare versions with each other and I know how to restore an old version.

Now I only want to restore a part of an old version.
Therefore I need the old markup from which I could copy the part I want to have restored and then paste it into my current version.

Another, more complicated, way to achieve this would be to restore the complete old version, copy the part from the markup, restore the current (then old) version again and paste the markup into it.

Is there a better way?

Best regards

Hi Achim,

If you would like to convert the current rich text format (4.0 and above) to wiki markup, you could achieve it by using Wikifier that is developed from one of our customer.

Hope it helps. Cheers.

This wikifier is cool :-)

I'm not sure, if I would paste pages with our business informations to this site, but the application is great !!
