I second this suggestion. Word wrapping doesn't mean that the comparison is not line based. It's just a matter of how the line is displayed.

Anyway, I strongly recommend Meld for this. It has a nice word wrapping feature as well as regex filters. For example, you can define filters that exclude certain numbers, white space, code comments etc.

It integrates well with TC.

I have setup so that Ctrl-S (for Sammenlign in Danish) invokes TC built-in differ whereas Shift-Ctrl-S invokes Meld on the two files.

Using Linux via Wine BTW and it works great :)
