When modifying documents in a SharePoint 2010 enterprise environment with major and minor versioning enabled, SharePoint keeps a version history for the document. The version history view though only shows changes to the title, date modified etc. How can I ensure that it shows ALL changes that have been made to the document?

Additionally this is actually an infopath document but I think the standard behaviour is the same for all office document types.

Thanks for any pointers

The version history only monitors the meta-data changes, it is not able to identify or highlight content changes within the document; InfoPath, Word, etc.
