Description

When viewing a diff, the selected alternative is bolded (and not linked) and the alternative option that can be selected is greyed out (with link).

Shouldn't it be the other way around? It is very confusing, and contrary to common UI practice. Or could it be adjusted like the appearance of small mini tabs or something where both look like valid choices, but where current choice can still be clearly seen?

I am no designer, and come as far as I can with this. This is an illustration of current status, and diff is included for anyone feeling the urge to improve it:

Mini-tabs alternative.
