Hi Rebecca,
	In the general case I don't have any good ideas.  If your two structures have consistent residue naming and numbering then it isn't too hard to do in Python.  In case your structures have consistent nomenclature, I have appended a script that will print the differences to the reply log and select the differences on the structures.  You run the script simply by opening it with File->Open.
